They kissed and parted at the gate, a lass and loving swain;
He was to sail the sea away, they might not meet again.
The love that bloomed in Mary's heart shone through her radiant eye,
She heard her lover's tender plea while whispering sad "good-bye! "
Don't forget me, Mary, while I sail the sea;
Don't forget me, Mary, wherever I may be.
Keep your heart in gladness, tender, warm and true;
Don't forget me, Mary, I'll think of none but you.

The ship went sailing far away, through wild and angry wave;
With gallant heart the sailor lad saw near a sailor's grave.
A darksome night, no land In sight-for death he had no fear,
And as he sank beneath the foam his voice rose sounding clear:- Chorus.

At home his Mary fondly waits her lover's glad return,
Still hoping, longing, day by day, her heart's reward to earn.
She does not know that Jack's warm band will never clasp her own;
At night in dreams she seems to hear his voice in loving tone: - Chorus.
