Lyrics

I courted a sailor for six months and many
I courted a sailor now he is far from me
I courted a sailor for six months and many
I courted a sailor now he is far from me
On a fine summer’s evening he said his heart was grievin'
On a fine summer’s evening these words he said to me
CHORUS
I’m bound for the waves, the waves dearest Annie
I’m bound for the waves, the waves upon the sea
I’m bound for the waves, the waves dearest Annie
I’m bound for the waves, the captain calls me

My heart has been yours now for six months and many
My heart has been yours now and will always remain
My heart has been yours now for six months and many
My heart has been yours now and will always remain
Take with you my ring and my heart you’ll always bring
Take with you my ring when you sail away to sea
CHORUS

I’ve married my sailor for six months and many
I’ve married my sailor now he is safe with me
I’ve married my sailor for six months and many
I’ve married my sailor no more he’ll say to me
CHORUS
CHORUS
