The wind has come, catching the line
The tide is turning white
White as our bed, the day you set sail
And the mainsail when you died

Your father’s ship was laid with gold
And jewels from Mandalay
And all these riches held you down
And wrecked you in the bay

The sun was torn by falling mast
And turned the sea to flame
And I looked out for rescue boats
Boats that never came

And in my dreams the gold’s cast free
And lost, your life to save
But oh my love, those rubies made
A pretty kind of grave

The young men come, with dreams of gold
Their eyes are bright with plans
But all I seek Is one small gold ring
In the absence of your hand
