Storms are on the Ocean is an Old Time tune, and has a sea faring theme about it. Easy going, and can be easily played on the diatonic harmonica. I like to play it in the Eb key'd diatonic harmonica, and it sounds just as good on the G-key'd harmonica as well, though the upper octave play gets a little shrill for me (personal preference).

I've incorporated the following lyrics into the YouTube segment that I made. You'll notice that ... once again, .. I use the sheet music only as a notional guide. That's what makes playing folk music with the harmonicas so much fun.

I'm going away to leave you love

I'm going away for a while

But I'll return to see you sometime

If I go ten thousand miles



The storms are on the ocean

The heavens may cease to be

This world may lose it's motion love

If I prove false to thee


Oh who will dress your pretty little feet

And who will glove your hand

Oh who will kiss your rosy red cheeks

When I'm in a foreign land


Papa will dress my pretty little feet

And Mama will glove my hand

You may kiss my rosy red cheeks

When you return again


Have you seen those mournful doves

Flying from pine to pine

A-mournin' for their own true love

Just like I mourn for mine


I'll never go back on the ocean love

I'll never go back on the sea

I'll never go back on my blue-eyed girl

'Til she goes back to me

It's all fun.
