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
