We'll, I'm leaving my family
I'm leaving all my freinds
My body's at home, but my heart's in the wind
And the clouds are like headlines
Upon a new frontpage sky
My tears are saltwater, the moon's full and high
And I know Joe Comrad
Would be proud of me
Many before me 'been called by the say:
'To be up in the crow's nest,
Singing my sayin':
Shiver me timbers, let's all sail away'
And the fog's lifting, the sand's shifting
I'm drifting on out
Old captain Ahab's got nothing on me
Swallow me, don't follow me
I'm travelling alone
The water's my daughter
I'll skip like a stone
And the fog's lifting, the sand's shifting
I'm drifting on out
Old captain Ahab's got nothing on me
Swallow me, don't follow me
I'm travelling alone
The water, she is my daughter
I'll skip like a stone
Won't you please call my family?
Tell 'em not to cry
My goodbyes are written by the moon in the sky
Say, nobody knows me
I got no reason to stay..
Shiver me timbers..
I'm sailing.. Away..
La la la la la la
la la la la
La la la la la la la
La la-ah la
