Jerry Jeff Walker – Sailing lyrics

Jerry Jeff Walker

Spoken:
Well, there I am in Mexico, man,
I'm sittin' on a big hot rock with the blues,
Watchin' this sailboat drive by, and I'm wonderin', "Where's mine?"
Hell, I know where there's ship in a bottle,
I mean a schooner with a worm on board, yeah.

Chorus:
I think I'm gonna go off sailing
I think I'm gonna go off sailing
I think I'm gonna go off sailing
Cause I've been on dry land too long

Something I seen here seems to make me seasick
Something I seen here seems to make me seasick
Something I seen here seems to make me seasick
And I been on dry land too long

Roll on

Chorus

Leeches, land sharks, octopuses make my brain hurt
Land sharks, octopuses make my brain hurt
Yea, and I've been on dry land too long

Ship in a bottle
Chorus

Sail on, sail on

Chorus

Let's carry on

Chorus

I need a ship in a bottle

Chorus
