Back To The Sea (The Cormiers)

I've been seven months aboard a shiny vessel,
Traveling all across the ocean wide;
And the Captain promised lots of fun and pleasure,
With the girls awaiting on the other side,
With the girls awaiting on the other side.

We've landed at the dock in St John's Harbour,
And I've more than just a penny to my name;
The captain gave us all a handsome bonus,
For braving out across the Spanish Main,
For braving out across the Spanish Main

There's a dandy little place that I'll take ya,
If only you will come along with me;
I've been seven months aboard
and I'm finally back on shore,
Let's have a time before it's back to sea,
Let's have a time before it's back to sea.

We've landed after dark at Lonesome Johnny's,
Where the music and the liquor's flowing free;
And I'll dance away the night with Maryellen,
She's the pretty lass that's standing next to me,
Ah, the pretty lass that's standing next to me.

Will I ever find a girl and choose to marry,
Or a rambling rover will I always be?
But I love the life of living on the ocean,
And tomorrow I'll be heading back to sea,
Aw tomorrow I'll be heading back to sea.
