The Storms Are on the Ocean I'm going away for to leave you, love I'm going away for awhile. But I'll return to you some time If I go ten thousand miles. cho: The storms are on the ocean The heavens may cease to be. The world may lose its motion, love If I prove false to thee. Now who will shoe your pretty little feet? And who will glove your hand? Who will kiss your red rosy cheek Till I come back again? Poppa will shoe my pretty little feet, Momma will glove my hand. And you can kiss my red rosy cheeks When you return again. See that lonesome turle dove As he flies from pine to pine. He's mourning for his own true love Just the way I mourn for mine. I'll never go back on the ocean love I'll never go back on th sea. I'll never go back on the blue-eyed girl Till she goes back on me. A Carter Family derivative of Annie of Lochroyal/Turtle Dove RG
