Where is My Sailor Boy SOURCE: Bob Pfeffer SOURCE'S SOURCE: Monroe Brothers (RECORD: RCA Victor LPV 507) C Oh, where is my sailor boy F C Where is my sailor boy F C He sleeps on the bottom of the deep blue sea C G7 C And he can't come back to me. cho: Oh, what does the deep sea say? What does the deep sea say? It moans, it groans, oh it splashes and foams And rolls on its weary way. Oh please tell me, deep blue sea Is he sleeping peacefully? The winds from the north are blowing icy cold Please keep him warm for me If only my dreaming soul Some token, a sign could find If only the waves would show me where he sleeps I would leave this world behind. cho: A beautiful rose, one day, I placed on the crest of a wave I said, "Take it please and let it settle home "Above his watery grave." Oh, what does the deep sea say What does the deep sea say It guards and holds two lovers in sleep As it rolls on its weary way. RPf
