Lyrics

So long, mother

I'm goin' away to sea

I'll return with the changin' season

Weep not for me

 

Send my best to miner's daughter

Who's goin' away to the city

She will come to know and love another

I will keep her in my dreams

I remember skin fair as the mornin'

I will keep her in my dreams

 

And, lo, the wind and waves will throw me

The beacon light beaten by the storm

Siren callin' out to tell me what my name was

I will find my way back home

Soil can never separate us

I will find my way back home

 

So long, mother

I'm goin' away to sea

I'll return with the changin' season

Weep not for me

Soil can never separate us

Weep not for me

Weep not for me
