Blow the wind southerly, southerly, southerly
Blow the wind south o’er the bonny blue sea
Blow the wind southerly, southerly, southerly
Blow, bonny breeze, my lover to me

They told me last night there were ships in the offing
And I hurried down to the deep rolling sea
But my eye could not see it wherever might be it
The bark that is bearing my lover to me

Blow the wind southerly, southerly, southerly
Blow, bonny breeze o’er the bonny blue sea
Blow the wind southerly, southerly, southerly
Blow, bonny breeze, and bring him to me

Is it not sweet to hear the breeze singing
As lightly it comes o’er the deep rolling sea
But sweeter and dearer by far when ‘tis bringing
The bark of my true love in safety to me
