Kate Rusby - Sleepless Sailor

rate me

I once was a sailor, a young man and brave

Da de dum day, da de dum dee

My nights were once sleepless

My peace I would crave

Carry me home to the sea

Da de dum day, da de dum dee

Drift away sailor boys, on the deep sea

Worry no more for you're safe now with me

Rest in my arms and my sweet melody

One night as I stood on the deck in the rain

Da de dum day, da de dum dee

I heard a sweet voice and she's singing my name

Carry me home to the sea

Da de dum day, da de dum dee

Drift away sailor boys, on the deep sea

Worry no more for you're safe now with me

Rest in my arms and my sweet melody

Oh rock me so gently, now ocean so deep

Da de dum day, da de dum dee

I wish I were back, cause I think I cant sleep

Carry me home to the sea

Da de dum day, da de dum dee

Drift away sailor boys, on the deep sea

Worry no more for you're safe now with me

Rest in my arms and my sweet melody

Da de dum day, da de dum dee

Drift away sailor boys, on the deep sea

Worry no more for you're safe now with me

Rest in my arms and my sweet melody
