lyrics

well there’s a name on my arm etched in ink for all to see
she is Isobella Morris and she once was sworn to me but that was so long ago that for now I can’t be sure
if I come home will she be there
like those hundred times before
and how can I get there from this the ocean floor?

she was the fairest lady that I had ever seen
when I first drowned I swore we’d meet again
on pastures rolling green
but when I go to the hilltop all the salt beneath my feet burned the grass crushed the mountains
there was no one there but me
before I knew the ground sank back into the sea

Isobella Morris dear
don’t you ever go off-shore
if I ever find you here
I will drag you to the floor

oh how I hope that you still walk along the beach on brighter days
I send you gifts each time the tide rolls in
some pitiful some great
but Isobella all your weepin is what keeps your love from me
all your tears sank the ocean send me farther out to sea
I’ve lost all hope of pastures rolling green
