lyrics

Hold my jacket against the rail
Stand and watch on deck
Staring out at the cold gray waves
And a-wonderin' if I'll be back
Well two days out in a cutting gale
Waves came o'er the bow
Well John had a wife and two little ones
Ah well who's gonna feed them now

And oh, the wind does blow
Across this inland sea
And oh, the wind must know
It's taken all from me

Well Nate used to sing and to play a jig
And fight down on Fuller in the park
'Til his legs got caught up in a trolling line
You could only hear his screams in the dark
Well you say I should leave, Lord I know that it's true
But what would I do upon shore
Well flotsam only lands to sit and rot
An old sailor's for a whore

And oh, the wind does blow
Across this endless sea
And oh, be careful my son
For it's taken all from me
