Just [A]about the hour of [E]three
When my [A]darling started to [D]leave me
And [A]sail on the [E]deep blue [A]sea

And I haven't heard from my darling,
Who is sailing on the deep blue sea.

My mother is dead and buried
My father's forsaken me
And I have no one to love me
But the sailor on the deep blue sea

He's drownded in the deep blue sea."

This is the last you'll see of me,
I'm going to end my troubles
By drowning in the deep blue sea.
