Oak Ridge Boys – Sail Away lyrics

Across the bay a lady waits to hold me tight,
And my boat and I are ready to set sail.
If the weather keeps on holdin' and the wind is right
I'll be wrapped up in my sweet one's arms tonight.

Chorus

And we will sail away
On the wings of love into the night
Cast out our fortunes on the sea
Then we will go to sleep together
With the rockin' of the water
Dream of how our life will someday be
When she sailed away with me

As I skip across the waves my sails are high and full,
My mind is on the one I wait to see.
And I dream about an island somewhere in my mind,
Where someday I will take her off with me.

Chorus

Then a smile comes upon me as I look across the bow;
I see a lady on the side.
But she will wait no more as I head for the shore,
Cause tonight I'm gonna take her for a ride.

Chorus x2
(fades out)
