Lyrics [Chorus]:
CINDY, OH CINDY,
CINDY,
DON'T LET ME DOWN.
WRITE ME
A LETTER SOON
AND I'LL BE
HOMEWARD BOUND.

[verse 1]:
I JOINED THE NAVY
TO SEE THE WORLD,
BUT NOWHERE
COULD I FIND
A GIRL AS SWEET
AS CINDY,
THE GIRL
I LEFT BEHIND;
I'VE SAILED
THE WIDE WORLD OVER,
CAN'T GET HER
OUT OF MY MIND.

[Chorus]:
CINDY, OH CINDY,
CINDY,
DON'T LET ME DOWN.
WRITE ME
A LETTER SOON
AND I'LL BE
HOMEWARD BOUND.

[verse 2]:
I SEE HER FACE
IN EV'RY WAVE,
HER LIPS
KISS EV'RY BREEZE,
HER LOVIN' ARMS
REACH OUT FOR ME,
THROUGH CALM
AND LONELY SEAS;
AT NIGHT
I PACE
THE LONELY DECK,
CARESSED BY MEMORIES.

[Chorus]:
CINDY, OH CINDY,
CINDY,
DON'T LET ME DOWN.
WRITE ME
A LETTER SOON
AND I'LL BE
HOMEWARD BOUND.

[verse 3]:
I KNOW
MY CINDY'S WAITING,
AS I WALK THE DECK
ALONE,
HER LOVIN' ARMS
REACH OUT FOR ME,
SOON I'LL BE
HEADIN' HOME;
THEN MY SAILIN' DAYS
WILL BE OVER
AND NO MORE
WILL I ROAM.

[Chorus]:
CINDY, OH CINDY,
CINDY,
DON'T LET ME DOWN.
WRITE ME
A LETTER SOON
AND I'LL BE
HOMEWARD BOUND.
