Lyrics


Gonna Sail

My daddy came across the ocean, back in ’63
He sent for my brothers, my sister and me
But things you leave behind, hard to get back
A love you’ve moved aside, slips off a lonely track

I’m gonna sail across the ocean
I’m gonna sail across the sky
And to all I left behind, good bye

I fell out of school as soon as I had enough
The bullies in the hallway never were that tough
Like worried little boys, their hand on a knife
I still look back and wonder what happened in their lives

I’m gonna sail across the ocean
I’m gonna sail across the sky
And to all I left behind, good bye

I met some little missy in a backroom bar
She took me for everything she even took my car
But I didn’t really mind, the nights were so good
You could hear the passion in her voice across the neighbourhood

I’m gonna sail across the ocean
I’m gonna sail across the sky
And to all I left behind, good bye

Some folks count the minutes, some folks count the bills
Others want for nothing in a mansion on a hill
But the saddest folks of all are those the past can hold
When changes come their way, mostly they fold

I’m gonna sail across the ocean
I’m gonna sail across the sky
And to all I left behind, good bye
