Cherryholmes – The Sailing Man lyrics
Sailing a sailing man for me
Today they left the harbor to sail out on the sea
I don't know when they'll be back around
I guess I'll have to wait like all the other girls in town

[Chorus:]
Sailing sailing so far from the shore
What makes a man leave the land and the one that he adores
Wondering waiting will he return to me
Or will I wait forever while he roams out on the sea

He roams upon the sea
Hey old man your ship came in today
Have you seen the one who left and went away
I've not heard a word from anyone
Oh can you tell me where he is or where he might have gone

[Chorus:]

Then one day a letter reached my door
Written by the one who left so many years before
It said "I don't know if you are still around but yesterday I married
A girl in another town"

[Chorus:]
