I set my eyes on Johnny
Johnny from Salakee
He was tall and handsome
But as poor as a man can be

He sure could dance my Johnny
We danced ´til the night was away
The birds of dawn were singing
Me and my Johnny swayed

Please God send me a wreck
Send me a wreck so I can get wed
Please God send me a wreck
So me and my love
can get married

He has no horse my Johnny
No land and no house and no cow
But he swears
he´ll make us wealthy
He would if he just knew how.

Please God send me a wreck…

I pray for storm and thunder
For disaster and for grief
My trust is in the reef

His eyes are blue and honest
But what will my father say
I put my trust in Johnny
Now the baby is on it´s way

Please God send me a wreck…
