He promised to write me a letter,
He promised to write to me;
But I haven't heard from my darling,
Who is sailing on the deep blue sea
"Oh, captain, can you tell me,
Can you tell me where he may be?"
"Oh yes, my pretty maiden,
He is drownded in the deep blue sea"
Farewell to friends and relations
This is the last you'll see of me,
For I'm going to end my troubles
By drowning in the deep blue sea
