(Mrs. Vaughan: “I want to sing another little song my mother sung. There’s only two verses of it that I know, but I always thought it was so pretty.”)

Blow, gentle winds o’er the dark blue sea,
Bid the storm king stay his hand,
And bring my Willie back again
To his own dear native land.

Shine, gentle moon, o’er the dark blue sea,
Shine amidst the waves so deep,
And bring my Willie back to me
So his promise he can keep.
