letra de dover - darling west


oh, dear sweetheart of mine
i reckoned my life to be over
out of darkness i saw them shine
the mighty white cliffs of dover

one early morning i set sail
out of port sainte-marine
no saint could save me, it would seem
from the raging storm i fell in

the crashing waves and howling winds
took my boat a-dancin’
a frightening waltz i could not lead
into the abyss a-glancin’

one- we rose and two- we stopped
three- towards hades falling
i felt the draw from down below
i heard the sirens calling

no saint am i, but saint was he
who brought my boat to harbor
he saved a sinner from the sea
saint brendan, the navigator
