TRUE TO JACK.
Copyright, 1891, by Francis, Day & Hunter.
Written by Lindsay Lennox. Composed by Theo. Bonheur.

He sailed away a year to-day, across the ocean blue-
Upon the quay he vowed that he would be forever true,
Would be forever true.
At duty's call, whate'er befall, the tar must sail the foam,
But love will guide him o'er the tide when Jack comes sailing home.

Merrily Jack is sailing, sailing across the foam,
Longing to meet the true lass who waits for him at home;
Her love will be a beacon to guide him safely back;
At night And day for him she'll pray-her heart is true to Jack!

Far out at sea is flying free a ship with spreading sail;
She cleaves her way towards the hay, the harbor soon she'll hail.
The harbor soon she'll hail.
And then ashore they'll meet once more, the lad and lassie true.
When love has brought him safe to port across the ocean blue.

Merilly Jack is sailing, sailing across the foam,
Longing to meet the true lass who waits for him at home.
Her love will be a beacon to guide him safely back;
At night and day for him she'll pray-her heart is true to Jack,
Her heart is true to Jack!
