The Ship That Never Returned
( Henry Clay Work) trad 

Lyrics and chords courtesy of www.sailorsongs.com    

A D A E7 
‘Twas a summers day and the waves were rippled by a soft and gentle breeze

A D A E7 A
When a ship set sail with a cargo ladened for a port beyond the sea

A D
There were fond farewells, loving remonstrations

A E7
by the ones who were most concerned

A D A E7 A
Though they little knew ‘twas the fatal voyage of the Ship That Never Returned

A D A E7
Did she ever return, no she never returned and her fate is still unlearned

A D
Though for years and years there were fond hearts watching for the

A E7 A
Ship That Never Returned

A D A E7
Said the feeble lad to his anxious mother I must cross the deep blue sea

A D A E7 A
For they say perchance in some foreign climate there is help and strength for me

A D
‘Twas a gleam of hope in the midst of danger and her

A E7
Heart for her youngest yearned

A D
But she sent him forth with a smile and a blessing on the

A E7 A
Ship That Never Returned


A D A E7
Only one more trip" said a gallant seaman as he kissed his weeping wife

A D A E7 A
Only one more bag of the gold and treasure and ‘twill last us all though life

A D A E7
Then we’ll settle down in our cozy cottage and enjoy the rest we’ve earned

A D A E7 A
But alas poor man he sailed commander of the Ship That Never Returned


A D A E7
Did she ever return no she never returned and her fate is yet unlearned

A D
Though for years and years there were fond hearts watching for the

A E7 A
Ship That Never Returned
