BRING BACK MY SAILOR BOY.
Copyright, 1888. by Wm. A. Pond & Co.

He kissed me sweet good-bye one day
Beside the cottage gate,
And whispered, Tho' I'm far away.
My dear one, watch and wait.
The failing tears were on my cheek.
He waved a last adieu;
Cheer up, he cried, what e'er betide,
My heart shall still be true.
Then breeze blow high or low,
Bear to him my message of joy;
And blue sea, over to me
Bring back my sailor boy

Chorus.
Breeze blow high or low.
Bear to him my message of Joy;
And blue sea, over to me
Bring back my sailor boy.

I watched afar the snowy sails,
They brought no word from him;
At night I heard the stormy gales,
That made my hopes grow dim.
In dreams I saw him on the deck,
And love, he said, be true;
Tho' storms may rave across the wave,
I'm sailing home to you.
Then breeze blow high or low,
Bear to him my message of joy;
And blue sea, over to me
Bring back my sailor boy.- Chorus.

The dawn is bright on sea and shore,
A sail is in the bay;
He comes to leave me never more,
My love comes home to-day.
Oh, bonnie ship that bounds along,
My heart flies out to you;
And winds may blow and seas may flow,
I know my love is true.
Then breeze blow high or low,
Bear to him my message of joy;
And blue sea, over to me
Bring back my sailor boy.-Chorus.
