Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I'm going away to leave you love
I'm going away for a while
But I'll return to see you sometime
If I go ten thousand miles
Verse 2
The storms are on the ocean
The heavens may cease to be
This world may lose its motion love
If I prove false to thee
Verse 3
Oh who will dress your pretty little feet
And who will glove your hand
Oh who will kiss your rosy red cheeks
When I'm in a foreign land
Verse 4
Papa will dress my pretty little feet
And Mama will glove my hand
You may kiss my rosy red cheeks
When you return again
Verse 5
Have you seen those mournful doves
Flying from pine to pine
A-mournin' for their own true love
Just like I mourn for mine
Verse 6
I'll never go back on the ocean love
I'll never go back on the sea
I'll never go back on my blue-eyed girl
'Til she goes back to me
