LyricsSong Name
And you, to whom adversity has dealt the final blow With smiling bastards lying to you everywhere you go Turn to, and put out all your strength of arm and heart and brain
Westward from the Davis Strait ’tis there ’twas said to lie The sea route to the Orient for which so many died
But I told that kid a hundred times “Don’t take the Lakes for granted. They go from calm to a hundred knots so fast they seem enchanted.”
'Now do not delay Nor do ye spare a thought for me My duty is to save you all now, if I can See ye return as quick as can be'
Ninety-one days to Montego Bay Pumping like madmen all the way
Once more we sail with the northerly gale through the ice and wind and rain Them coconut fronds, them tropical lands, we soon shall see again
And wet rose she from the lake And fast and fleet went she One half the form of a maiden fair With a jet-black mare's body
This western life’s no paradise, But it’s better than lying down. Oh the streets aren’t clean, and there’s nothing green, And the hills are dirty brown
LyricsSong Name
Where the earth shows its bones of wind-broken stone And the sea and the sky are one I’m caught out of time, my blood sings with wine And I’m running naked in the sun
Smith was pullin’ for the shore But he could scarce be seen Under near two hundred chickens And a leather couch of green
Feel her bow rise free of Mother Sea In a sunburst cloud of spray That stings the cheek while the rigging will speak Of sea-miles gone away
Then it's home again, eat again, watch some TV Make love to my woman at ten-fifty-three I dream the same dream when I'm sleeping at night I'm soaring over hills like an eagle in fl
And none of them I’ll call a friend no more For when the knife came down, I was helpless on the ground No neighbor stayed his hand, I was alone
I’ve watched the V’s of geese go by, the foxfoot in the snow I’ve climbed the ridge of Gaspereaux Mountain, looking to the valley below
There was no romance on a cold winter ocean and the gale sang an awful song But my fathers knew of wind and tide, and my blood is Maritime
