Out on the Ocean

I am sailing out on the ocean
Many miles from home on sea
And I wonder little darlin
If you ever think of me

I am just on old true lover
Roaming through this world alone
And I have no one to love me
Through this life I’ll always own

I was once carefree and happy
When I won my sweetheart’s hand
And now my life is empty
Since she’s wed another man

Do you remember little darlin
Just how much I cared for you
And you told me that you loved me
But you proved to be untrue

I am travelling far away dear
Many miles from this old place
And I know I’ll never forget you
Your sweet smiles and happy face

I can hear my mother calling
I can see my father pray
If I’d listened to my father
I would be at home today
