The Last Farewell Lyrics

The Last Farewell (最后的告别) - Roger Whittaker

There's a ship lies rigged

And ready in the harbor

 

Tomorrow for old England she sails

 

Far away from your

Land of endless sunshine

 

To my land full of rainy

Skies and gales

 

And I shall be aboard

 

That ship tomorrow

 

Though my heart is full of tears

At this farewell

 

For you are beautiful

 

And I have loved you dearly

 

More dearly than the spoken word can tell

 

For you are beautiful

 

And I have loved you dearly

 

More dearly than the spoken word can tell

 

I've heard there's a wicked war a-blazing

 

And the taste of war

I know so very well

 

Even now I see the foreign flag a-raising

 

Their guns on fire as we sail into Hell

 

I have no fear of death

It brings no sorrow

 

But how bitter will be this last farewell

 

For you are beautiful

 

And I have loved you dearly

 

More dearly than the spoken word can tell

 

For you are beautiful

 

And I have loved you dearly

 

More dearly than the spoken word can tell

 

Though death and darkness gather all about me

 

And my ship be torn apart upon the seas

 

I shall smell again

 

The fragrance of these islands

 

And the heaving waves

That brought me once to thee

 

And should I return home

Safe again to England

 

I shall watch the English

Mist roll through the dale

 

For you are beautiful

 

I have loved you dearly

 

More dearly than the spoken word can tell

 

For you are beautiful

 

I have loved you dearly

 

 

More dearly than the spoken word can tell
