George Jones I'll Sail My Ship Alone Lyrics

Last updated:

Written by S. Nathan, H. Thurston, H. Bernard & M. Burns

(As performed by Ray Price)

We've been sweethearts for so long
Now you say we're thru
The love we shared is just a memory
Well I had built a ship of dreams
And planned them all for you
Now I guess what is to be will be

So I'll sail my ship alone
With all the dreams I own
Drifting out across the ocean blue
I'll sail my ship alone
Tho' all the sails are torn
And when it starts to sink then I'll blame you

I gave a message to the wind
To take back home to you
Hoping you would hear my S-O-S
Hoping that you would come back home
My darling if you knew
Just how much my heart was in distress

(Repeat chorus)

When it starts to sink then I'll blame you


(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

Well,
REPEAT CHORUS
