Bring Back My Johnny to Me

Bring Back My Johnny to Me

He's gone, I am now sad and lonely
He's left me to plough the salt sea
I know that he thinks of me only
And will soon be returning to me

  Some say that my love is returning
  To his own native country and me
  Blow gently the winds of the ocean
  And bring back my Johnny to me

He's gone his fortunes to better
I know that he's gone for my sake
And I'll soon be receiving a letter
Or else my poor heart it will break

Last night as I lay on my pillow
My bosom it heaved with a sigh
As I thought one each angry billow
While watching the clouds in the sky
