Sailor On The Deep Blue Sea


He promised[A] to write me a [D]letter,
He promised[A] to write to [E]me;
But I haven't [A]heard from my [D]darling,
Who is [A]sailing on the deep blue [A]sea.

"Oh, captain, can you tell me,
Can you tell me where he may be?"
"Oh yes, my pretty maiden,
He is drownded in the deep blue sea."

Farewell to friends and relations .
This is the last you'll see of me,
For I'm going to end my troubles
By drownding in the deep blue sea.
