Lyrics

(Source: as heard)

Jackie left on a cold, dark night,
Telling me he'd be home.
Sailed the seas for a hundred years,
Leaving me all alone.
And I've been dead for twenty years,
I've been a-washing the sand with my ghostly tears,
Searching the shores for my Jackie, oh.
I remember the day when the young men came.
Said, "Your Jackie's gone; he got lost in the rain."
And I ran to the beach and laid me down.
"You're all wrong," I said, and they stared at the sand,
"That man knows that sea like the back of his hand.
He'll be back sometime, laughing at you."
And I've been waiting all this time
For my man to come take his hand in mine,
And lead me away to unseen shores.
I've been a-washing the sand with my salty tears,
Searching the shore for these long years,
And I'll walk the sea forevermore,
'Til I find my Jackie, oh,
'Til I find my Jackie, oh,
'Til I find my Jackie, oh,
Jackie, oh,
Jackie, oh,
Jackie, oh.
