Ray Price — I'll Sail My Ship Alone lyrics

(Lois Mann - Henry Bernard - Murray Burns)
Well, we've been sweethearts for so long
Now you say we're through
The love we shared is now a memory
I had built a ship of dreams
And planned them all for you
But now I guess what is to be will be.
I gave a message to the wind to take home
On to you hoping you would hear my S.O.S.
I thought that you would come back home my darling
Of you knew how much my aching heart was in distress.
Well, I'll sail my ship alone
With all the dreams I own
Drifting out across the ocean blue
Yes, I'll sail my ship alone
Though all the sails you torn
And when it starts to sink then I'll blame you.
--- Instrumental ---
Now, I'm just like a ship at sea that's lost without a sail
The dark clouds hide the sun from up above
And even with these broken dreams my heart will never fail
But deep inside there's only one true love.
Yes, I'll sail my ship alone
With all the dreams I own
Drifting out across the ocean blue
Yes, I'll sail my ship alone
Though all the sails you torn
And when it starts to sink then I'll blame you...
