Saxon — Jack Tars lyrics

Once was a sailor
Ship of the line
Came to my duty
Serving my time

Far, far away from you I must go
Ne'er to return - I do not know
If I return to tell you my tale
I'll sing of gunsmoke and blood-stained sails

Stand by my shipmates
We will not fall
Jolly Jack Tars, brave men and all
