Lightnin' Hopkins – Sail On, Little Girl, Sail On lyrics

Sail on, sail on, little girl, sail on
Sail on, sail on, little girl, sail on
Well, you know you gonna keep on a sailin'
Till you lose your happy home

You know, I can remember
First day she sail away
Cryin', “I gotta go now, Lightnin'
I ain't got no place to stay”

Sail on, sail on, little girl, sail on
Well, you gonna keep on a sailin'
Till you lose your happy home

Sail on, sail on, little girl, sail on
Sail on, sail on, little girl, sail on
Well, you know when you sail away
Po' Lightnin' ain't gonna stay here long
Sail on

I remember last word she had to say
I remember last word she had to say
She said, “Lightnin', I'm figurin' to sail
I'm sailing on today”

Sail on
