I'm going away at eveningtide, across the wide and rolling sea

The song I know as "The Last Farewell", with a hit recording by Roger Whittaker, starts out "There's a ship lies rigged and ready in the harbor", and the refrain starts with "For you are beautiful...". I'm afraid it's a different song from the one you have in mind.

That's a beauty by Randy Sparks of the New Christy Minstrels. His lyrics are set to the traditional tune for The Water is Wide or O Waly Waly.

LAST FAREWELL

I'm going away at eventide
Across the wide and the rolling sea
I bid you stay, stay here by my side
And share a last farewell with thee.

Through snowclad mountains proud and tall
Or a thousand miles 'cross the burning sand
Our last farewell then will I recall
When I'm alone in a far off land.

A wand'rin' song is all I know
Yet I love you more, more than words can tell
I hear the call and I'm bound to go
I leave you now with a last farewell.

Randy used to come to our house when I was a little kid. He and Dean Jones were sailors then. My Dad was a teacher who moonlighted (moonlit?( at the Columbia Locker Club in San Diego. He'd invite them home to a home-cooked meal on the weekend and they'd sing for us.

I can't be positive but I'm pretty sure that the first line in the last verse of this song is "A wand'rin SOUL is all I know". I guess it makes sense either way but that's how I remember them singing it.
