Bill Monroe – Where Is My Sailor Boy? lyrics
Oh, where is my sailor boy? Oh, where is my sailor boy?
He sleeps in the bottom of the deep blue sea
And can't come back to me

I stand on the beach alone and gaze at the misty blue
Deep sea ere you hold him to your breast,
Does he mention my name to you?

Chorus:
Oh, what does the deep sea say? Oh, what does the deep sea say?
It moans, it groans, oh it splashes and foams, and rolls on it's weary way

Oh please tell me deep blue sea, is he sleeping peacefully?
The winds from the north are blowing icy cold,
Please keep him warm for me

If only my dreaming soul, some token or sign could find
If only the waves would show me where he sleeps,
I would leave this world behind

Chorus:
Oh, what does the deep sea say? Oh, what does the deep sea say?
It moans, it groans, oh it splashes and foams, and rolls on it's weary way

A beautiful rose one day, I placed on the crest of a wave
I said take it please and let it set upon
Above his watery grave

As it would I watched in vain, my rose ne'er came back again
So wave take another message to my love,
Saying I'll meet him above

Chorus:
Oh, what does the deep sea say? Oh, what does the deep sea say?
It guards, it holds true lovers, and sleeps, and rolls on its weary way.
