The Anchor's Aweigh

Oh the anchor's a-weigh, the anchor's a-weigh,
Fare-well, fare you well, my own true love


At last we part-ed on the shore,
as the tears rolled gently from her eyes.
Must you leave me now, she did say,
That I face this all alone?

Oh the anchor's a-weigh, the anchor's a-weigh,
Fare-well, fare you well, my own true love
