: Blow, blow, softly blow. Wind fresh and free. Bear a lover's sighing, Far beyond the sea, Blow, blow, softly blow, Tell her this from me, Love unshaken vows undying, Fly across the sea. [first line of chorus] Title 2.) Eight bells. Blow, blow, softly blow. Title 3.) One summer night far out at sea, A sailor sang a lover's lay, The breeze caught up the melody, And bore it many leauges away, 'Neath swelling sails the moonlight gleaming, Shone on the sail or singing there, And softer cadence filled the air, In echo to the lover's dreaming.
