The ToneWay® Project: helping people play music

Going Across the Sea

I'm going across the 5 sea
stay forever 1 more
Left my little darlin'
4 standing in the 1 door

Won't you come and go
come and go with me
Fly to me my pretty little Miss
I'm going across the sea

Wind is howling low
wind is howling high
Go with me my pretty little love
'til the day I die

Wouldn't you give a nickel
wouldn't you give a dime
Wouldn't you give one dollar bill
to call your name as mine

Donie, Donie, Donie
what makes your face so red
Working out in the crops, son
fever in my head

The ToneWay Project also offers songbooks, CDs, and a free online video series for learning to play music by ear.
