The hands on the clock keep turning around,
They point to the time of the day;
The time means nothing with you by my side,
Though sometime I'll be on my way.

Down the road to where I must go,
There's nothing between you and me;
I'll take a boat down the river, my love,
And sail away to the sea.
I'll sail away to the sea.

What will you take to remember me by,
I've no money to buy you a smile;
I can't say the words to bid you farewell,
So I'll carry them with me awhile.

Down the road to where I must go,
There's nothing between you and me;
I'll take a boat down the river, my love,
And sail away to the sea.
I'll sail away to the sea.

You'll wave goodbye till I pass out of sight,
As you're waving goodbye for good;
I can't even take you part of the way,
I only wish that I could.

Down the road to where I must go,
There's nothing between you and me;
I'll take a boat down the river, my love,
And sail away to the sea.
I'll sail away to the sea.
