Sweet Delphine

When my ship sailed into port
The Captain told us
Boys, take a look around

A little tavern down a winding road
We all made merry, the drinks did flow

All my life I’ve been a sailor
Seen the seven wonders
Sailed the seven seas
But I have never seen such beauty
As my sweet Delphine

She told me she had travelled far
We talked all night until the last fading star

All my life I’ve been faithful
Faithful to my Captain
Faithful to the sea
Should I disregard my calling?
And give it up
to stay with my sweet delphine

“Life can be cruel and Life can be good”
Captain Hart once told me
“I’ll come and see this girl for myself
And give my blessing to you and Delphine”

All my life has been filled with wonders
Surprises that I could never foresee
But I was never more surprised
When my Captain took her hand
Gave up his post
to marry my Sweet Delphine
