Oh, come back to me
Oh, come back to me
Red sailors, red sailors
Bring my love to me

'Twas down where fisher-folk gather
I wandered far from the throng
I heard a fisher-girl singing
And this refrain was her song

Red sails in the sunset
Way out on the sea
Oh, carry my loved one
Home safely to me

He sailed at the dawning
All day I've been blue
Red sails in the sunset
I'm trusting in you

Swift wings you must borrow
Make straight for the shore
We marry tomorrow
And he goes sailin' no more

Red sails in the sunset
Way out on the sea
Oh carry my loved one
Home safely to me

Oh, carry my loved one
Home safely to me
