Tiny Red Light

Click Here for guitar tabs.

Put the light in the window, my darling, she said,
As she gazed at the dark, stormy night overhead.
A little girl ran with her eager delight
And she placed in the window the tiny red light.

Her father came home from his work withered cold,
Angry and cross 'cause his fish were not sold.
He said that the oil it must do for the night,
So he took from the window the tiny red light.

Oh, Father, dear Father, don't take it away;
Think of them poor sailors far out on the bay.
If he could have seen what had happened that night,
That might have been saved by the tiny red light.

The very next morning came a knock on the door;
A sailor stood pointing far out on the shore.
Three tiny ships went adrift in the gale;
With tears in his eyes he told her father this tale.

We followed yer tiny red light said the man,
'Til it vanished from sight - on the rocks our ship ran.
Many were drowned on the bill of last night
That might have been saved by yer tiny red light.
That might have been saved by yer tiny red light.
