Keel away

Lyrics

Keel away, keel away
Ride the waves softly
Keel away, keel away
Sailing home to Mary

Keel away, keel away
Blow the waves gently
Keel away, keel away
Cross the sound to Tory

Been away far too long
How I long for Mary’s arms
Keel away, keel away
Cross the sound to Tory

Keel away, keel away
There’ll be fare a-plenty
Keel away, keel away
When I’m with my Mary

In her arms, Mary’s charms
Will erase all lonely days
Keel away, keel away
Cross the sound to Tory
Cross the sound to Tory
Cross the sound to Tory
Cross the sound to Tory
To Tory
