Loving a sailor is a high price to pay
Loving him is truly hard when he’s away
It’s being alone with nothing to hold
It’s being young, but feeling old
It’s having him whisper his love for you
It’s whispering back that you love him too
There comes a kiss and a promise for more
As his ship slowly glides away from shore
Reluctantly, painfully, letting him go
While your insides are dying from wanting him so
Watching him leave with eyes full of tears
Standing alone with your hopes, dreams and fears
It’s sending a letter with the stamp upside down
To a far away love, in a far away town
It’s going to church to kneel and pray
And really meaning the things that you say
Being in love will foster your dreams
Days go by
No mail for a spell, you wait for some word
To hear that’s he’s well
Then a letter arrives and you’re given in
To open his letter and read it with a grin
Yes, he is well and misses you so
And fill with love you wanted to know
Weeks are like months
And months are like years
You wait for the day when you’ll have no more fears
Days go by slowly how many have passed
Yes, loving a sailor brings bitterness and fears
Loneliness, sadness despondent years
Loving a sailor isn’t much fun
But it’s worth the price when the battle is won
And remember he is thinking of you everyday
He’s sad and he’s lonely while so far away
Be strong and have faith, wipe that tear from your eye
Your man’s a seafarer like that old ancient trader
It’s a high price to pay for loving a sailor.
