A Wife in Every Port

I'm sailing awa in the morning
I'm sailing awa wi the tide
And when I return again
Lassie will ye be my bride
Will ye be my bride, my boys
Will ye be my bride
And when I return again
Lassie will ye be my bride

Laddie I will wait for you
As long as my life
Laddie I will wait for you
And I'll be a sailor's wife
I'll be a sailor's wife, my boys
I'll be a sailor's wife
Laddie I will wait for you
And I'll be a sailor's wife

Oh the sun it shone and the wind it blew
And the ship sailed out to sea
She caught the eye of a soldier lad
Who was standing on the quay
Standing on the quay, my boys
Standing on the quay
She caught the eye of a soldier lad
Who was standing on the quay

Oh the storm it raged and the cannons roared
And driving was the rain
After twelve months out to sea
He was homeward bound again
Homeward bound again, my boys
Homeward bound again
After twelve months out to sea
He was homeward bound again

And down he met her at the docks
With a fine lad in her arms
She said, I'm sorry my sailor lad
I fell for a soldier's charms
I fell for a soldier's charms, my boys
I fell for a soldier's charms
She said, I'm sorry my sailor lad
I fell for a soldier's charms
