THE SAILOR'S WAY
(from the singing of Frank VIckery - tune=Off to Sea Once More)
(Doerflinger -'Songs of the Sailor and Lumberman - p109)

I've sailed among the Yankees, The Spainards and Chinees.
I've laind down with the yellow girls beneath the tall palm trees.
I've crossed the Line and Gulf Stream, and around by Table Bay,
And around Cape Horn and home again, oh, that's the sailor's way!

Oh, bobby'll go to his darling, and Johnny'll go to his dear,
And Mike will go to his wife and fam'ly, and Andrew for pipes and beer;
But I'll got to the dance hall to hear the music play,
For around Cape Horn and home again, oh, that is the sailor's way!
