Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
T'was midnight on the stormy deep
My solitary watch I'd keep
And think of her I'd left behind
And ask if she'd be true and kind
Verse 2
I never shall forget the day
That I was forced to go away
In silence there my head she'd rest
And held me to her loving breast
Verse 3
Oh Willy don't go back to sea
There's other girls as good as me
But none can love you true as I
Pray don't go where the bullets fly
Verse 4
The deep deep sea may us divide
And I may be some other's bride
But still my thoughts will oft times stray
To be with thou so far away
Verse 5
I never have proved false to thee
The love I gave was true and kind
But you have proved untrue to me
I can no longer call thee mine
Verse 6
So fare-thee-well I'd rather make
My home upon some icy lake
Where the southern sun refused to shine
Then to trust a love so false as thine
