{red sails in the sunset, way out on the sea}

Oh, carry my loved one home safely to me

{she sailed at the dawning, all day I’ve been blue}

Red sails in the sunset, I’m trusting in you

Swift wings you must borrow

Make straight for the shore

We marry tomorrow

And she goes sailing no more

{red sails in the sunset, way out on the sea}

Oh, carry my loved one home safely to me

Swift wings you must borrow

Make straight for the shore

We marry tomorrow

And she goes sailing no more

{red sails in the sunset}

Way out on the sea (ooh-wee-ooh, wee-ooh)

Oh, carry my loved one

{home safely to me}

{bracketed words are sung by nat in unison with background
singers}

(words in parentheses are sung by background singers only)
