Lost Sailor

Lyrics: John Barlow

Music: Bob Weir

  

Compass card is spinning

Helm is swingin' to and fro

Ooh where's the dog star

Ooh where's the moon

You're lost sailor

You've been too long at sea

 

Some days the gales are howling

Some days the sea is still as glass

Ooh reef the mainsail

Ooh lash the mast

You're lost sailor

You've been too long at sea

 

Now the shore-lights beckon

Yeah there's a price for being free

 

Yeah the sea birds cry

There's a ghost wind blowin'

It's calling you to that misty swirling sea

Till the chains of your dreams are broken

No place in this world you can be

 

You're lost sailor

You've been way too long at sea

Now the shore-lights beckon

Yeah there's a price for being free

 

Drifting yeah drifting

Yeah drifting and dreaming

 

'Cause there's a place you've never been

Maybe a place you've never seen

You can hear her calling on the wind

Go on and drift your life away

Yeah just drifting and dreaming

Maybe drift your life away

Drifting and dreaming

Yes I'm going on a dream

Maybe going on a dream

Maybe going on a dream

Maybe going on a dream
