Lyrics

Well he was a sailor on the east coast
And she was a maiden in the west
And every few months their paths would cross
A couple never felt so blessed

After many years of thinking
He finally knew what he had to do
He had to part ways with his mistress
And live the life he wanted to
So he said

Will you run with me
I’m so tired of a life on the sea
I need a companion to help me through
The only one I need is you
So she said

They started traveling through the country
Seeing sights they’d never known
Making memories all the while
But they never had a home

And this bore hard on the maiden
She asked “Why don’t we settle down”
Build a home and start a family
The sailor started to frown
Then he said

Will you marry me
I’ve seen this world’s beauty
But it does not compare to thee
You are my whole world, the only one I need
So she said, yes

They were married in her home town
You’d never seen so many tears
Happiness was in abundance
And it would be for years and years

Children then came soon
Soon as they came, seemed as soon as they moved away
Then our couple were once again alone
Just as they were on the fateful day
When he said

Will you run with me
I’m so tired of a life on the sea
I need a companion to help me through
The only one I need is you

Time has a funny way of changing things
Age slows down for no one
So are maiden came to her end of days
And she said to our sailor man

Will you stay with me
I’m so tired and it’s getting harder to see
I need a companion to help me through
The only one I need is you
