So I'll sing farewell to Carnlingford,
and farewell to Greenore
I'll think of you most day and night,
'till I return once more
'till I return once more

when I was young and in my prime
I wandered wild and free
there was always a longing in my mind
to follow the call of the sea CHORUS

Well a landsman's life is all his own
he may go or he may stay
but when the sea gets in your blood
when she calls you must obey CHORUS

well I had a girl named Mary Doyle
and she lived in Greenore
the foremost thought 'twas in her mind
was to keep me sake on shore CHORUS

now I sail upon the seven seas
I sail before the mast
and every voyage I have been
I swore 'twoud be my last CHORUS
