      C
Oh, where is my sailor boy
  F                 C
Where is my sailor boy
     F                          C
He sleeps on the bottom of the deep blue sea
        C
G7      C
And he can't come back to me.

cho: Oh, what does the deep sea say?
         What does the deep sea say?
         It moans, it groans, oh it splashes and foams
         And rolls on its weary way.

Oh please tell me, deep blue sea
Is he sleeping peacefully?
The winds from the north are blowing icy cold
Please keep him warm for me

If only my dreaming soul
Some token, a sign could find
If only the waves would show me where he sleeps
I would leave this world behind.

cho:

A beautiful rose, one day,
I placed on the crest of a wave
I said, "Take it please and let it settle home
"Above his watery grave."

Oh, what does the deep sea say
What does the deep sea say
It guards and holds two lovers in sleep
As it rolls on its weary way.
