Kate Rusby – I Courted A Sailor lyrics

I courted a sailor for six months and many,
I courted a sailor, now he's far from me.
I courted a sailor for six months and many,
I courted a sailor, now he's far from me.
On a fine summer's evening he said his heart was grieving
On a fine summer's evening these words he said to me

Chorus
Oh I'm bound for the waves, the waves dearest Annie,
I'm bound for the waves, the waves upon the sea.
Oh I'm bound for the waves, the waves dearest Annie,
I'm bound for the waves, the captain calleth me.

Chorus

Me heart has been yours now for six months and many,
Me heart has been yours now and will always remain.
Me heart has been yours now for six months and many,
Me heart has been yours now and will always remain.
Take with you me ring and me heart you'll always bring,
Take with you me ring when you sail away to sea.

Chorus

I'll wait for me sailor for six months and many,
I'll wait for me sailor till he comes home from sea.
I'll wait for me sailor for six months and many,
I'll wait for me sailor till he comes home from sea.
I'll wait for you me dear, for time we'll know no fear.
I'll wait for you me dear till you come home from the sea.

Chorus

I've married me sailor for six months and many,
I've married me sailor now he's safe with me.
I've married me sailor for six months and many,
I've married me sailor no more he'll say to me

Chorus
