Allman Brothers Band – Ocean Awash The Gunwale lyrics

Our lives are hanging in the balance
Or they're dangling by a thread
A spark of life brought down from an angel
To raise the stranger from the dead
Once more we're cheating on the reaper
With all the gypsy in our souls
Cause I know there's a God up in heaven
Who must love rock and roll

Once again we sail home to Sarasota
As the ocean awash the gunwale
But she still keeps her head above water
Guess we're all gonna live to tell this tale

And here's to the you for always hangin' in
Without you there's no reason to go
I'd be lying face down in some river
Waiting on an angel to take me back home

Once again we sail home to Sarasota
With the ocean awash the gunwale
But she still keeps her head above water
Guess we're all gonna live to tell this tale

Solo:

Once again we sail home to Sarasota
With the ocean awash the gunwale
But she still keeps her head above water
Guess we're all gonna live to tell this tale
