  • Cheer up, Annie, darling, With hopeful emotion; To-morrow our parting must be; I'll sail the seas over, I'll cross the wide ocean, I'll sail the seas over for thee. I will not forget thee, Ah never, no never, I cannot forget thee, I know. Thy smile, like a phantom, Shall haunt me forever And cheer me where e'er I may go. Chorus
  • Good-bye, Annie, darling; Break off from thy sorrow: 'Tis sad the our parting must be. I'll sail the seas over, I'll cross the wide ocean, I'll sail the seas over for thee. I go, Annie, darling, But leave thee in sorrow, I go for thy sake far away: Then bid me good-bye With a smile on the morrow, And cheer me with blessings, I pray. I'll think of thee ever, And pray for thee only, As over the waters I roam; I'll tarry not, darling, And leave thee all lonely, But hasten again to my home. (Chorus.) Out, out on the ocean, Away o'er the billow, My heart on its purpose still bent, My brow shall find rest, When I seek my lone pillow, I knowing that thou art content. Cheer up, Annie, darling: Break off from thy sorrow, 'Tis sad that our parting must be, But give me thy smile When I leave thee to-morrow, To sail the sea over for thee. (Chorus.)
