The Platters – Red Sails In The Sunset lyrics
{Red sails in the sunset, way out on the sea}
Oh, carry my loved one home safely to me
{She 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 she goes sailing no more


{Red sails in the sunset, way out on the sea}
Oh, carry my loved one home safely to me

Swift wings you must borrow
Make straight for the shore
We marry tomorrow
And she goes sailing no more

{Red sails in the sunset}
Way out on the sea (ooh-wee-ooh, wee-ooh)
Oh, carry my loved one
{Home safely to me}

{bracketed words are sung by Nat in unison with background singers}
(words in parentheses are sung by background singers only)

    In Perry Como's version, he sings the Verse before the Refrain, but none of the lyrics sites give the verse. In the Verse the singer is listening to a fisher girl singing to her loved one, "HE sailed at the dawning..." which makes more sense than "she sailed at the dawning", etc. Where can I find the Verse?
