Sinking In The Lonesome Sea lyrics

There was a little ship
And it sailed upon the sea
And she went by the name of the Merry Golden Tree
And she sailed upon the low and lonesome low
And she sailed upon the lonesome sea

There was a little sailor
Unto his captain said
Oh captain captain what'll you give to me
If I sink them in the low and lonesome low
If I sink them in the lonesome sea

Two hundred dollars
I will give unto thee
And my oldest daughter I will wed unto you
If you sink them in the low and lonesome low
If you sink them in the lonesome sea

He bowed upon his breast
And away swim he
Till he came the ship of the Turkish Reveille
As she sailed upon the low and lonesome low
As she sailed upon the lonesome sea

If it wasn't for the love
Of your daughter and your men
I would do unto you as I did unto them
I would sink you in the low and lonesome low
I would sink you in the lonesome sea

He bowed his head
And down sank he
Farewell farewell to the Merry Golden Tree
For I'm sinking in the low and lonesome low
For I'm sinking in the lonesome sea
