​Keep On Sailing

This song is by Memphis Minnie and appears on the compilation album Complete Recorded Works In Chronological Order 1935-1941, Volume 3 (1991).

Sail on, sail on, ah baby, sail on
Sail on, sail on, ah baby, sail on
I don't mind you sailing, but please don't sail so long

Oh boys, now don't you want to ride with me
Oh boys, now don't you want to ride with me
I've got the best sailor in this world you ever seen

Going away, going away but I ain't gonna stay
Going away, going away but I ain't gonna stay
'Cause that sailor you got, I sees it each and every day

Sail on, sail on, ah baby, sail on
Sail on, sail on, ah baby, sail on
You gonna keep a-sailing, till you find your mama gone
