A Sailor’s Lament

Life Is But A Wheel

A Sailor’s Lament.mp3

Tell me have you ever known a dawg
Who always had a ball and loved to play?
Remember how you’d laugh and carry on?
Well I’m thinking of that friend of mine today
I left him with my girl in San Antone
When I hit the road and headed for the waves
But little did I know I’d trade it all
If I could only hear him barking for one day

It’s not the stirring of the seas, it’s not the blowing of the breeze
That’s got me drinking in the middle of the day
It’s this vast and lonely ocean that has sent me out one thousand miles away

And I’m a thousand miles away from the home town
About a thousand times a day I try to run this ship aground
There’s so many reasons why I should be home now
And not a single reason why I should remain…

Tell me have you ever know a girl?
A buttercup as sweet as she could be?
Remember how your love was like a song?
And to hold her in your arms was all you’d need?
I left one like that back in San Antone
When I hit the road and headed for the Keys
Little did I know I’d trade it all
Just to have her sitting on my knees.

It’s not the stirring of the seas, it’s not the blowing of the breeze
That’s got me drinking in the middle of the day
It’s this vast and lonely ocean that has sent me out one thousand miles away

And I’m a thousand miles away from the home town
About a thousand times a day I try to run this ship aground
There’s so many reasons why I should be home now
And not a single reason why I should remain…
