about

31/03/12 "So Captain, are these big waves?" I ask. A firm nod with a twinkle in his eye. Grin and bear it. We head for shelter under the east headland of Nicos Amorgos.

lyrics

Land ahoy! Oh promised land!
For sure twill be grand with a beer in our hand
Watching and smiling as ladies pass by

We set sail from France, rolled from her coast
I held my thoughts and the boat held her course
For five days we sailed and the world passed below

The moon follows the sun to catch up if it can
High on our backs, the Captain, me and Dan
But we don't don't like the look of this ominous cloud

The promised lure, for sure tis a cure
Sit under a tree, my honey and me
Drink wine, eat fine, lay back in the grass
But in comes a storm, our love is forlorn
We cannot make dock, she'll take what it's got
Steer her to starboard lads, lets hope she lasts

Sail on sailors, sail on by
Sail on ye mariners, don't you die
Sail on, Lord I cry
Cos never did I say goodbye
