||World - Celtic
Brown was the color of my true loves hair
His skin is like pond lilly fair
It broke my heart when he sailed away
now in my sleep I can hear him say
Captain, Captain tell me true
Does my dear sailor boy sail with you?
Say he does and bring me great joy.
Then can I look at my sailor boy?
Oh no young lady he is not here
in the gulf he drowned and we left him there
among the rocks as we passed by
there we let your true lover lie.
So dig my grave both wide and deep
a marble stone at my head and feet
and at my breast a sweet turtle dove
to show the world I died of love.
