SAILOR ON THE DEEP BLUE SEA

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 drownding in the deep blue sea.

From Ozark Folksongs, Randolph
Collected from Grace Hahn, Ark, 1941
Recorded by the Carter Family
