The Last Farewell Lyrics

There's a ship lies rigged and ready in the harbor

Tomorrow for old England she sails

Far away from your land of endless sunshine

To my land full of rainy skies and gales

And I shall be aboard that ship tomorrow

Though my heart is full of tears at this farewell

For you are beautiful, I have loved you dearly

More dearly than the spoken word can tell

For you are beautiful, I have loved you dearly

More dearly than the spoken word can tell

I've heard there's a wicked war a-blazing

And the taste of war I know so very well

Even now I see the foreign flag a-raising

Their guns on fire as we sail into hell

I have no fear of death, it brings no sorrow

But how bitter will be this last farewell

For you are beautiful, I have loved you dearly

More dearly than the spoken word can tell

For you are beautiful, I have loved you dearly

More dearly than the spoken word can tell

Though death and darkness gather all about me

My ship be torn apart upon the seas

I shall smell again the fragrance of these islands

And the heaving waves that brought me once to thee

And should I return home safe again to England

I shall watch the English mist roll through the dale

For you are beautiful, I have loved you dearly

More dearly than the spoken word can tell

For you are beautiful, I have loved you dearly

More dearly than the spoken word can tell
