Soul of the Sailor Shanty

 

Travelin on this sea so many years

I long to go back home

Where mother earth will comfort me

And I wont have to roam

 

Ill see my home and rest my mind

From the driftin thoughts that carried me

Upon the waves of time

 

So blow ye winds and fill the sails

Of hope that carries me

To distant shores Ive heard some tell

Lie across the deep

 

Ill see my home and rest my mind

From the driftin thoughts that carried me

Upon the waves of time

 

Far from the shore where I was born

The sea has carried me

Yet still it washes oer the sands

That hold my lock and key

 

Ill see my home and rest my mind

From the driftin thoughts that carried me

Upon the waves of time

 

On shore I see a lamplight

Was it placed for me

To guide me oer the rocks and shoals

Dividing shore from sea

 

Ill see my home and rest my mind

From the driftin thoughts that carried me

Upon the waves of time
