Lyrics verse 1:
'TWAS DOWN
WHERE FISHER FOLK GATHER,
I WANDER'D FAR
FROM THE THRONG.
I HEARD A FISHER GIRL
SINGING,
AND THIS REFRAIN
WAS HER SONG:

Chorus:
RED SAILS IN THE SUNSET
'WAY OUT TO SEA,
OH! CARRY MY LOVED ONE
HOME SAFELY TO ME.
HE SAILED AT THE DAWNING
ALL DAY I'VE BEEN BLUE,
RED SAILS IN THE SUNSET,
I'M TRUSTING IN YOU.

SWIFT WINGS YOU MUST BORROW,
MAKE STRAIGHT FOR THE SHORE
WE MARRY TOMORROW,
AND HE GOES SAILING NO MORE.

RED SAILS IN THE SUNSET
'WAY OUT ON THE SEA,
OH! CARRY MY LOVED ONE
HOME SAFELY TO ME.

verse 2:
RED SAILS,
THE NIGHT BREEZE IS BLOWING,
AND CLOUDS ARE HIDING
THE MOON.
ABOVE NO BRIGHT STARS
ARE GLOWING,
IT MEANS
THE STORM'S COMING SOON:

Chorus:
RED SAILS IN THE SUNSET
'WAY OUT TO SEA,
OH! CARRY MY LOVED ONE
HOME SAFELY TO ME.
HE SAILED AT THE DAWNING
ALL DAY I'VE BEEN BLUE,
RED SAILS IN THE SUNSET,
I'M TRUSTING IN YOU.

SWIFT WINGS YOU MUST BORROW,
MAKE STRAIGHT FOR THE SHORE
WE MARRY TOMORROW,
AND HE GOES SAILING
NO MORE.

RED SAILS IN THE SUNSET
'WAY OUT ON THE SEA,
OH! CARRY MY LOVED ONE
HOME SAFELY TO ME.
