He's Riding the Waves Back to Me

Theres a young girl
By the seashore
With a longing in her eyes
Don't let go she says
he's almost home she says
he's riding the waves back to me

Out to war he's gone
To fight men he's gone
But he'll be back quite soon
Don't let go she says
he's almost home she says
he's riding the waves back to me

Poor young girl she waits
Long lost soul she waits
Never knowing he died so long ago
Don't let go she says
he's almost home she says
he's riding the waves back to me

She has long since died
That young girl she cried

Don't let go she said
he's almost home she said
he's riding the waves back to me

I have met my love
But he leaves me love
Tomorrow he sales out to sea
Don't let go he says
I'll come home he says
I'll be riding the waves back to you

Now that girl am I
By the shore wait I
With that longing in mine eyes
Don't let go I say
he's almost home I say
he's riding the waves back to me

Out to war he's gone
To fight men he's gone
But he'll be home quite soon
Don't let go I say
he's almost home I say
he's riding the waves back to me

Poor young girl I wait
Long lost soul I wait
Never knowing if he's still alive
Don't let go I say
he's almost home I say
he's riding the waves back to me
