i’ll sail my ship alone lyrics – patsy cline

(as released by patsy cline, october 28, 1963)

we’ve been sweethearts for so long
but now you say we’re thru
the love we shared is now a memory
i have built a ship of dreams
and planned them all for you
but now i guess what is to be, will be

chorus:
i’ll sail my ship alone
with all the dreams i own
drifting out across the ocean blue
yes, i’ll sail my ship alone
tho’ all the sails you’ve torn
and when it starts to sinkin’
i’ll blame you

now, i gave a message to the wind
to take back home to you
hoping you would hear my s-o-s
i thought that you would come back home
my darlin’, if you knew
how much my achin’ heart was in distress

chorus:
well, i’ll sail my ship alone
with all the dreams i own
drifting out across the ocean blue
yes, i’ll sail my ship alone
tho’ all the sails you’ve torn
and when it starts to sinkin’
i’ll blame you.
