DAY AFTER DAY(The Last Voyage)
Copyright, 1892, by Francis, Day & Hunter.
Written and Composed by Harry Dacre.

She is standing at the place where he took his last embrace,
On the edge of the glist'ning bay;
On the smoothly silver sand, with the letter in her hand,
That she reads day after day.
It is time for his returning, and her heart is sadly yearning,
Still the canvas wings of white are not yet in sight.

Day after day she gazes o'er the bay;
Day after day you'll hear the maiden say,
Blow, breezes blow, And bring my love to me,
For this will be the last time my laddie will go to sea.

And as week by week goes by, all the luster of her eye
Is bedimmed by her anguished tears,
For the ship is overdue, and for her dear boy in blue
She is thrilled with nameless fears.
Ere the light is fairly dawning, on the beach she stands each morning,
Straining eyes for sailing ships, prayers upon her lips.- Chorus.

But the ship comes home at last, and the anchor's safely cast,
While the girl's heart is filled with joy,
But each sailor shook his head when she questioned him and said,
Where is he, my sailor boy?
Then she learned from Jack, the rover, how some child had fallen over,
How her laddie braved the tide, how he nobly died.

Day after day she gazes o'er the bay;
Day after day her hair with grief is gray;
No breeze that blows can bring thy love to thee;
This is, indeed, the last time thy laddie will go to sea.
