The Sailor lyrics and chords, written by Johnny McEvoy.
Also recorded by Padraig Grimes.

And it’s all very well said the sailor

But I’ve sailed many miles o’re the sea

And I thought I had left you behind me

But somehow it wasn’t to be

But I knew that I’d never forget you

Tho’ it’s years since I saw your face

But I thought you at least would remember my name

When again I returned to this place

[Chorus]

 

And oh how I long for the days that are gone

And the good times that once used to be

When you were a girl with the wind in your hair

And I a lad home from the sea

 

As I sailed on the harbour I saw you

On the pier where we once used to stand

But I knew in my heart I had lost you

For another was holding your hand

As you stood on the dockside before me

I could tell by the look in your eyes

That you just couldn’t place

Where you last saw my face

And that took my poor heart by surprise

 

And oh how I long for the days that are gone

And the good times that once used to be

When you were a girl with the wind in your hair

And I a lad home from the sea

 

So straingt away I went to the bar room down town

To the place where the bright lights do shine

And shoewhere within amid the laughter and gin

I remember the nights you were mene

But I should of known you were lying

That the words you said were untrue

So I’ll throw back my beer and sail out 0f here

And in time I’ll forget about you

 

And oh how I long for the days that are gone

And the good times that once used to be

When you were a girl with the wind in your hair

And I a lad home from the sea

 

I use a capo on the second fret verse chords
