EVERY SAILOR’S DREAM

Where are you going to take off
Your boots tonight, my love?
Where are you going to take off your dress?

This port of call
Could never be a home to me
The wind blows tidings across the sea
Ships sail by
But the shore remains
Still
Nevertheless
I must confess

I am a wanderer back on a trail he can remember
A hobo and a pair of southbound rails in December
Like a good wind and rum shining amber
And a homebound stream
You’re every sailor’s dream

I wake up down at the bottom of an empty glass
And the harbor princess’s mouth tastes like ass

My trouble and strife are like this dull knife
Unfit to end a seagull’s life

I look out on the ocean and the crowns of the waves
They look like tombstones on nameless graves
Of those who have lost all their loving to the call of the sea
Just like you and me

I am a wanderer back on a trail he can remember
A hobo and a pair of southbound rails in December
Like a good wind and rum shining amber
And a homebound stream
You’re every sailor’s dream

Baby, no more will I sail off the shore
I know I promised to you
A thousand times or more

But this time I will swallow the anchor
And I am going nowhere
If only I knew
You were waiting
And your pretty yellow ribbon is waving
When my ship rolls in


I am a wanderer back on a trail he can remember
A hobo and a pair of southbound rails
When it turns cold in December
Like a good wind and rum shining amber
And a homebound stream
You’re every sailor’s dream
