Emma 3

This is the song Emma and Frank sing together at Randalls. In this adaptation, the Randalls evening replaces the scenes that took place at the Coles' party in the novel.

Emma 3 Music: Father, Father Build me a Boat

When you're finished here, you may want to go back to the Emma 3 music page.

It was early in the month of May,
Down by the green field I chanced to stray.
I heard a young maiden sigh and say that the man she loved
Had strayed away.

Oh, father, father, build me a boat,
For it's over to Ireland I'm yearning to float
To search for my true love through tempest and storm
For I know in his arms
I'm safe from all harm.
