Boston and St. John's

Girl, don't tell me that it's mornin'
Can we keep the curtains drawn?
I haven't given you fair warning
But our ship, she sails at dawn

Chorus:
And it's true I must be going, but I swear I won't be long
There isn't that much ocean between Boston and St. John's
Well I'm a rover, and I'm bound to sail away
I'm a rover, can you love me anyway?

And if some suitor comes approaching
Will you let him through your door?
And what if I return half-broken
Will you still want me anymore?

Chorus

Close your eyes and dream and tell me what you see
Tell me what you want, just tell me that you'll wait for me

But oh, don't tell me that it's mornin'
Can we keep the curtains drawn?
I haven't given you fair warning
But our ship, she sails at dawn

Chorus

Can you love me anyway?
Love me anyway
