Letra A Wife In Every Port

I'm sailin' awa' in the morning, I'm sailing awa' on the tide
And when I return again, lassie, will ye be m'bride?
Will ye be m'bride, m'boys, will ye be m'bride?
And when I return again, lassie, will ye be m'bride?

Laddie, I will wait for you as long as m'life
Laddie, I will wait for you and I'll be a sailor's wife
I'll be a sailor's wife, m'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
When she caught the eye of a soldier lad who was standing on the quay
Standing on the quay, m'boys, standing on the quay
She caught the eye of a soldier lad who was standing on the quay

And the storm, it raged, and the cannons roared, and driving was the rain
After twelve months at the sea, he was homeward bound again
Homeward bound again, m'boys, homeward bound again
After twelve months at the sea, he was homeward bound again

And there he met her at the docks with a baby in her arms
Saying, "I'm sorry, my sailor lad, but I fell for a soldier's charms"
I fell for a soldier's charms, m'boys, I fell for a soldier's charms
Saying, "I'm sorry, my sailor lad, but I fell for a soldier's charms"

"Don't you worry, m'bonnie lass," was the sailor's bold retort
"Don't you worry, m'bonnie lass, I've a wife in every port"
A wife in every port, m'boys, a wife in every port
Don't you worry, m'bonnie lass, I've a wife in every port

A wife in every port, m'boys, a wife in every port
Don't you worry, m'bonnie lass, I've a wife in every port
