about

traditional, arr. Evie Ladin

lyrics

chorus
Going across the sea
Going across the sea
Fare-thee-well my true love
I'm going across the sea

Wish I had a nickel
Wish I had a dime
Wish I had a pretty little girl
To love me all the time

chorus

Wish I had a needle
Fine as I could sew
I'd sew that girl to my coattails
And down the road I'd go

Won't you come and go
Come and go with me
Fare-thee-well my true love
I'm going across the sea

Say can you change a nickel
Can you change a dime
Can you move to Tennessee
Change your name to mine

chorus
