I Love a Sailor

Cat. #1059 (MFH #372) - As sung by Raymond Sanders, Mountain View, Arkansas on May 12, 1970

I loved a sailor, a sailor loved me
Each night he would sail to my home
He's not a sailor that sails th blue sea
He sails in a air all alone
He owns an airship an' sails upon high
He's just like a bird on th wing
When th shadows of evenin' draw nigh
He sails to my window an' sings

Come take a trip in my airship
Come take a sail along stars
Come take a trip in Venus
Come take a sail around Mars
There'll be no one to see while we're kissing
No one to hear while we spoon
Come take a trip in my airship
We'll visit th man in th Moon

Last night while slowly sailing along
We passed thru th Milky White way
Slowly a sailing and watching th clouds
He asked me if I'd name th day
Near th Dipper I gave him my heart
To sunshine on our honeymoon
We promised each other, ever to love
An' to people all th people th tune
