UNDER THE SAILOR'S STAR.
Copyright, 1893, by Francis, Day & Hunter.
Words by Clifton Bingham. Music by Edward St Quentin.

Out on the foam the good ship ploughs her way,
A speck upon, upon the mighty main:
And cheery lads with stalwart hearts are they,
Who sail across the blue Atlantic plain.
They're ready, aye, whatever wind may blow,
Whatever wind may blow,
And wheresoe'er the ship may roam,
To spin a yarn of deeds below,
Or fight and beat a crafty foe,
Their hearts with those they love at home,
Their hearts with those they love at home,
With those they love at home.

Refrain.
Rolling, rolling, over the sea afar,
Roaming gaily, under the sailor's star;
Storm and sunlight, sailing the world around,
'Tis merrily ho, And cheerily ho, for the outward bound.

In from the west the wind is blowing free,
When stars at night, at night their vigil keep;
But bonnie wives and lassies bright I see,
Who watch for those who roam the mighty deep,
To scan the main they come at close of day,
They come at close of day,
And wheresoe'er the ship may be,
Their straining eyes look o'er the bay,
They hear the stormy wind and pray,
Their hearts with those they love at sea,
Their hearts with those they love at sea,
With those they love at sea.

Refrain.
Rolling, bowling, over the sea afar,
Roaming gaily, under the sailor's star;
Storm and sunlight, sailing the world around,
'Tis merrily ho, And cheerily ho, for the homeward bound.
