“Sail on Sailor” Lyrics

If you ever get to old England
She is a lady, so treat her well
And please remember, we once were lovers
Oh, how I miss her now that she is gone

If you ever sail to Jamaica
And you are lying in Kingston Bay
And if you can see those smiling faces
Then just remember, she used to be your slave

Sail, sail on, sailor
Sail, sail on by
Sail, sail on, sailor
Sail, sail on by

If you ever drift near Tahiti
And the deep blue waters call out your name
Then hoist your main sail, sail right on by her
She doesn’t need you, she has all she could want

Sail, sail on, sailor
Sail, sail on by
Sail, sail on, sailor
Sail, sail on by
Sail, sail on, sailor
Sail, sail on by
Sail, sail on, sailor
