The Foggy Shores of Home

I’ve sailed upon the ocean wide
I’ve sailed the world around
I’ve sailed on Barques and Brigantines
From Lisbon to St. John’s
I’ve sailed where the ocean tossed and rolled
I’ve sailed where the ocean foams
I’ve sailed where the ice flows thunder and roll
To bring the white coats home

Wherever you may ramble,
Wherever you may roam
Wherever you may be
You’ll be happy to see
The foggy shores of home.

I’ve sailed down to the South Sea Isles
I’ve sailed where the trade winds come
I’ve sailed on schooners listing low
To bring home backey and rum
I’ve sailed to the city of New York,
To labour in the sky
High above the streets below
To home my heart would fly.

Wherever you may ramble,
Wherever you may roam
Wherever you may be
You’ll be happy to see
The foggy shores of home.

One day I will sail back home
To my dear foggy shore
I’ll plough the ground of my home town
And go to sea no more.

Wherever you may ramble,
Wherever you may roam
Wherever you may be
You’ll be happy to see
The foggy shores of home.

Wherever you may ramble,
Wherever you may roam
Wherever you may be
You’ll be happy to see
The foggy shores of home.
