Bill Monroe - Where Is My Sailor Boy? Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • Oh, where is my sailor boy? Oh, where is my sailor boy?
  • He sleeps in the bottom of the deep blue sea
  • And can't come back to me
  • I stand on the beach alone and gaze at the misty blue
  • Deep sea ere you hold him to your breast,
  • Does he mention my name to you?
  • Chorus:
  • Oh, what does the deep sea say? Oh, what does the deep sea say?
  • It moans, it groans, oh it splashes and foams, and rolls on it's weary way
  • Oh please tell me deep blue sea, is he sleeping peacefully?
  • The winds from the north are blowing icy cold,
  • Please keep him warm for me
  • If only my dreaming soul, some token or sign could find
  • If only the waves would show me where he sleeps,
  • I would leave this world behind
  • Chorus:
  • Oh, what does the deep sea say? Oh, what does the deep sea say?
  • It moans, it groans, oh it splashes and foams, and rolls on it's weary way
  • A beautiful rose one day, I placed on the crest of a wave
  • I said take it please and let it set upon
  • Above his watery grave
  • As it would I watched in vain, my rose ne'er came back again
  • So wave take another message to my love,
  • Saying I'll meet him above
  • Chorus:
  • Oh, what does the deep sea say? Oh, what does the deep sea say?
  • It guards, it holds true lovers, and sleeps, and rolls on its weary way.
