Lyrics:

Waves At My Back

I've loved the sea since I were a babe
waves, waves, at my back
Had me a lass and she were a fox
waves, waves, away

A ship done called for me to come
waves, waves at my back
my gal did cry but still i run
waves, waves, away

Before I left I ran her goods
waves waves at my back
Promised to marry her when I return
waves waves away

I met me a girl in far off guam
waves waves at my back
She played the bagpipe like a Highland gal
waves waves away

I visited brothels world around
waves waves at my back
I loved girls both thin and round
waves waves away

In each port another love
waves waves at my back
just me, a girl, a bottle of rum
waves, waves away

Soon as they love me the sea, she calls
waves, waves, at my back
They got their figures but the sea has it all
waves, waves away

Returned home to find my girl
waves, waves, at my back
She'd had a baby while I were gone
waves, waves, away

I called upon 'er to make me her wife
waves, waves, at my back
The baby were way too young
waves, waves away

Been gone bout two years long
waves, waves at my back
The baby t'wer a fortnight old
waves, waves away

Out to sea is where I belong
waves, waves, at my back
Whores in my bed but the Sea's me wife
waves waves away

[Exit]
