If The Gaff Don’t Let Us Down

I miss my love so dearly,
I miss my home sweet home,
I wish that you could hear me,
I’d let my plan be known,
That we sail away tomorrow,
God speed me to your side,
Raise the anchor up boys,
And bid this land goodbye,

The Atlantic lay between us but wont keep us from each other,
On the early hour high tide I’ll be sailing to my lover,
Sail away tomorrow back to where my heart does lie,
I’ll be dreaming of you England 50 days and 50 nights,

Sail away tomorrow back to where my heart does lie,
I’ll be dreaming of you England 50 days and 50 nights,

Rough seas may lay before us but we’ll stay true to the rudder,
We’ll keep on pushing forward ever closer to my lover,
We’ll sail away tomorrow and wont sleep a wink tonight,
Let’s raise a glass to England she will be a pretty sight,

We’ll sail away tomorrow and wont sleep a wink tonight,
Let’s raise a glass to England she will be a pretty sight,

Instrumental

Oh ray and up we’ll sing until the early morn,
Lets raise a glass to England she will be a pretty sight,

Wind roar up and don’t be shy and fill the main sail full,
May God bless this vessel from its mast head to its hull,
We’ll sail away tomorrow back to dear old Deptford Town,
Home again for Christmas if the gaff don’t let us down,

We’ll sail away tomorrow back to dear old Deptford Town,
Home again for Christmas if the gaff don’t let us down,
Oh ray and up we’ll sing until the early morn,
Home again for Christmas if the gaff don’t let us down,
Oh ray and up we’ll sing until the early morn,
Home again for Christmas if the gaff don’t let us down.

    Great music. Found out about the group listening to Radio Caroline. Missed you in St Pete, FL last summer, but i’ll be in Fort Lauderdale in February. Best of luck in the future! Happy New Year!

  2. I’ve grown to love this song. Now that I’ve seen the lyrics, I love it even more! :)
