My Annie (Far Across the Water)

© Lyrics by Ray Scudero. Music by Jill Rogoff. All rights reserved.

Full underway at dawn (far across the water),
gone to chase the sun (far across the sea).
And with her my heart is gone (far across the water), (2x)
until the year is done (far across the sea).
And keep her from the peril of the storm,
And tell my Annie love will never fail
Let it be within her heart forever warm.

White ribbons on the tide ...
by Fortune cast aside ...
Until you’re by my side
and come to be my bride,
Until you’re by my side
and come to be my bride.
And may the wind spin magic in the spray,
A spell to keep you safely while you sleep:
And as the sands of time will pour away,
My Annie waits for me across the sea.

Sight will guide you home ...
by northern star alone ...
And my love will ever be
with my Annie across the sea,
And my love will ever be
with my Annie across the sea.
Your smile is in the blossoms in the spring.
I see you in the heather in the glen,
I hear your voice when birds of summer sing—
Oh, may the time fly swiftly till we meet again.

Then soon the sun will rise ...
When your smile will greet my eyes ...
On the long and distant shore
In love forever more,
On the long and distant shore
In love forevermore.
