Sail home, as straight as an arrow, My yacht shoots along on the crest of the sea, Sail home to sweet Maggie Darrow [In her dear little home sh]e is waiting for me.
[High up! where cliffs they a]re craggy, [There's where the girl of] my heart waits for me, [Heigh! ho, I long for you, M]aggie, [I'll spread out my White] Wings and sail home to thee.
[Yo! ho, how we go! Oh! ho]w the winds blow. ["White Wings" they never gr]ow weary, [They carry me cherrily [sic] o]ver the sea, [Night comes, I long for my] dearie [I'll spread out my White W]ings and sail home to thee. [Sail! home, to love and caresse]s, [When Maggie, my darling,] is there at my side, [Sail! home, blue eyes and gold] tresses, [The fairest of all is my own] little bride. [Sail home to part from thee n]ever, [Always together life's voya]ge shall be, [Sail home to love thee foreve]r! [I'll spread out my "white w]ings" and sail home to thee. [Yo! ho, oh how go! Oh, how] the winds blow. - Cho.
