Lyrics
Chorus
Blow the wind Southerly, Southerly, Southerly,
Blow the wind South o’er the bonnie blue sea;
Blow the wind Southerly, Southerly, Southerly,
Blow bonnie breeze, my lover to me.

They told me last night there were ships in the offing,
And I hurried down to the deep rolling sea;
But my eye could not see it
Wherever might be it,
The bark that is bearing my lover to me.
(Chorus)

The ships there were many a blowing and bowin’
And bending right o’er in the salty sea foam;
‘Til my eye did behold it,
As many had told it,
The great bonnie ship of my lover come home.
(Chorus)

My sweetheart had fared through the winter unfriendly:
His ship came along in the early spring tide.
Now my heartache is ended;
All rifts now are mended;
My lover will soon be right here by my side.
(Chorus)
