Copyright, 1885, by Robert Schact

I left her standing on the shore,
My love so sweet and dear,
To sail the wide, wide ocean o'er,
Tho' skies be bright or drear.
But still a star yet shines for me
With joy that none can tell,
The star that guides me o'er the sea
While sailing home to Nell.

I'm sailing home, I'm sailing home,
Across the dark blue sea;
Tho' far I wander o'er the foam,
There's one who waits for me;
Oh, still a star now shines for me,
With joy no heart can tell,
It's one bright star that shines for me,
I'm sailing home to Nell.

I sail the fierce and angry deep,
And still of her I dream;
I think of her whene'er I sleep,
Her eyes upon me beam;
Tho' while my watch I keep at sea,
One thought I love to tell,
Tis true my heart shall ever be,
While sailing home to Nell.-Chorus.

Tho' when I sail again to home.
Across the dark blue sea,
I know there's one beyond the foam
Whose smile will welcome me.
As constant as the polar star,
No words her love can tell,
She'll greet me sailing from afar,
While sailing home to Nell.-Chorus.
