Oh meet me oh meet me by moonlight
Oh meet me by moonlight alone
For I have a sad story to tell you
Must be told my moonlight alone.

I wish I had someone to love me
Someone to call me their own
I wish  I had someone to love me
For I’m tired of living alone.

I’ll be carried to a new girl tomorrow
Leaving my little darling alone
With these prison bar all around me
And my head on a pillar of stone.

Now I have fine ships on the ocean
All laden with silver and gold
And before my poor darling will suffer
The ship must be anchored and sold.

If I had the wings of an angel
O’er these prison walls I would fly
I would fly to the arms of my darling
Where there I’d be willing to die.
