I'M SAILING HOME TO MARY.
Copyright, 1886, by T. B. Harms & Co.
Words by J. F. Mitchell. Music by Frank Howard.

The vessel's prow to the sea is turned,
And the last good-bye is said;
The sails of white are ablaze with light,
Which the sun's last rays have shed,
Which the sun's last rays have died.
And those behind, with their tears near blind,
From the shore are trembling led;
And those behind, with their tears near blind,
From the shore are trembling led.
But high up in the mainmast top,
Hark! to the sailor's voice,
He sings the part of a joyous heart,
Rejoice! rejoice! rejoice!

Refrain.
I'm sailing home to Mary, the lassie that I adore;
Sailing home to Mary, and she'll meet me on the shore;
If the winds don't blow contrary, I'll soon be home with Mary,
And when I clasp her in my arms, I'll never leave her more.

The "storm king" rides on the wings of night,
And be laughs, with demon's glee,
For spar and suit are alike too frail
In the midst of the raging sea,
In the midst of the raging sea;
The danger's past, it is o'er at last,
And the gallant ship sails free;
The danger's past, it is o'er at last,
And the gallant chip is free;
Then high up in the mainmast top,
Hark! to the sailor's voice.
He sings the part of a joyous heart.
Rejoice! rejoice! rejoice!-Refrain.
