Perry Como - Red Sails In The Sunset Lyrics




(Oh come back to me, Oh come back to me,
Red Sailors, Red Sailors, bring my love to me!)

'Twas down where fisher-folk gather,
I wandered far from the throng,
I heard a fisher-girl singing,
And this refrain was her song . . .

(Oh O'oo!)

Red sails in the sunset,
Way out on the 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 sailin' no more . . .

Red sails in the sunset,
Way out on the sea,
Oh carry my loved one
Home safely to me . . .

Oh carry my loved one
Home safely to me . . .

    I believe the background singer on this record is Sally Sweetland, who provided the background voice for Perry and a number of other singers in the 1950s and 1960s. She was also the singing voice for a number non-singing actresses in movies. She died in 2015 at age 103.
