Carry Me Ohio – I Sailed A Ship lyrics

I sailed a ship 'til it bit me
I rode a horse 'til I cried
And all these pictures they’re eating holes in my walls
Like a path laid bare at low tide then none at all

You can build with wood about you
You can write with words from in you
Love so deep feels like it will divide you
While tickets to ride pass like dead flowers before you

I could not deliver you
King’s cavalier in sorrow my grace has burned
And it’s a lesson too late to learn
Times not a quantity full to fool with

In the way the sunlight leaves us
Making us think we have reparations due us
Well I have stolen
I will steal
Yeah I have stolen
I will steal
Another year
