English traditional folk song from Northumbria.

Lyrics:
Blow the wind southerly, southerly, southerly,
Blow the wind south o`er the bonny blue sea;
Blow the wind southerly, southerly, southerly,
Blow bonnie breeze, my lover to me.

They told me last night there were ships in the offing,
And I hurried down to the deep rolling sea;
But my eye could not see it wherever might be it,
The barque that is bearing my lover to me.

Blow the wind southerly, southerly, southerly,
Blow bonnie breeze o`er the bonny blue sea;
Blow the wind southerly, southerly, southerly,
Blow bonnie breeze, and bring him to me.

Oh, is it not sweet to hear the breeze singing,
As lightly it comes o`er the deep rolling sea?
But sweeter and dearer by far when `tis bringing,
The barque of my true love in safety to me.
