A Sailing Song


(German folk tune, Lyrics by Homer H. Harbour, publ. 1921)

1. The ocean winds are blowing;
The rapid tide is flowing;
Come let us go a-sailing
A-down the bay so blue.

A derry down do,
A derry down do,
Behind us drops the shore;
A derry down do,
A derry down do,
The sea springs up before.

2. The waves before us curling
Are soon behind us whirling;
We leave a white track foaming
That soon fades out of sight.
