The Road To Torbay (Anchors Aweigh)

Click Here for tabs.

Moonlight and teardrops, the scent of the pine trees,
The green of the hills, and the blue of the bay;
It's so long ago that I scarcely remember,
The night that we parted on the road to Torbay.

We walked hand in hand
through the fields and the meadows,
And in the bright moonlight we walked by the sea;
We walked in the dawning and in the bright morning,
And well I remember her last words to me.

Tomorrow you'll leave, dear, for lands o'er the ocean,
And soon you'll be sailing the wild angry sea;
In my dreams I'll be with you at night and at dawning,
And darling, my darling, please come back to me.

Those were her words as we kissed and we parted,
Down at the shore at the break of the day;
I'll always remember the night that we parted,
As we walked hand in hand on the road to Torbay.

Through the long weary years
many memories have faded,
But I'll always remember that one lovely day;
And I'll always remember her words as we parted,
As we said farewell on the road to Torbay.

Tomorrow you'll leave, dear, for lands o'er the ocean,
And soon you'll be sailing the wild angry sea;
In my dreams I'll be with you at night and at dawning,
And darling, my darling, please come back to me.

And darling, my darling, please come back to me.
