Charley's Across the Sea
Last updated: 25.01.17

This is another doleful, but beautiful, song written by Joe Wilson to the tune of "Even me" about a bonny lass mournfully longing for her departed sailor lad and hoping that he will return to her safely from the sea. It is given in Joe Wilson's Tyneside Songs and Drolleries interestingly as a "temperance song".
This song may be found in the Tyneside Maritime Chorus songbook but not yet in my personal repertoire
