MY SAILOR GIRL.
Copyright, 1889, by J. Thome.
Words and Music by Frank Addis Kent.

The ship is sailing o'er the main,
My heart is light as air;
I'm Hearing home and friends again,
I soon will meet them there.
When, oh! across the deck now treads
A being fair to see,
Her tresses waving in the breeze,
My sailor girl so free.

Chorus.
Ah! fain would I thus sail with thee
Across life's bounding sea;
'Neath sunny skies or dark'ning clouds,
My sailor girl, with thee.

Her jaunty sailor hat is placed
So saucily one side,
The stars upon her collar shine
And nestle there with pride;
Her dainty feet are bearing her
Now closely to my side,
Ah! pass me not, but with me stay
And o'er the billows ride.-Chorus.

The land is reached, we step ashore,
My sailor girl And I;
"We seek the little church near by,
The parson find to tie
The knot that binds us in the bonds
Of matrimony sweet,
And thus my sailor girl from then
As dearest wife I greet.

Chorus.
Ah! fain will I thus sail with thee
Across life's bounding sea;
'Neath sunny skies or dark'ning clouds,
My sailor girl, with thee.
