Lyrics for Song: Midnight On The Stormy Deep
Lyrics for Album: Anthology [2003]

Was midnight on the stormy deep

My solitary watch I'd keep

And think of her I'd left behind

And ask if she'd be true and kind

I never shall forget the day

That I was forced to go away

In silence there my head she'd rest

And press me to her loving breast

Oh Willy, don't go back to sea

There's other girls as good as me

But none can love you true as I

Pray don't go where the bullets fly

The deep, deep sea may us divide

And I may be some other's bride

But still my thoughts will sometimes stray

To be [Incomprehensible] far away

I never have proved false to thee

The love I gave was true and kind

But you have proved untrue to me

I can no longer call thee mine

And fare thee well I'd rather make

My home upon some icy lake

Where the southern sun refused to shine

Then to trust a love so false as thine
