Wave Over Wave


by Great Big Sea. Buy album CD: Up


Only name Table Rogers a share man am I
On a three-masted scooner from Twelingate Isle
I've been the world over North, South, East and West
But the middle of nowhere's where I likes it best

Where it's wave over wave sea over bow
I'm as happy a man as the sea will allow
There's no other life for a sailor like me
Than to sail the salt sea boys to sail the sea
There's no other life but to sail the salt sea

Well I leave my wife lonely ten months of the year
For she built me a home and raised my children D'ere
She never come out to bid farewell to me
Or can why a sailor must sail the salt sea

Where it's wave over wave sea over bow
I'm as happy a man as the sea will allow
There's no other life for a sailor like me
Than to sail the salt sea boys to sail the sea
There's no other life but to sail the salt sea

Oh the work it is hard and the hours are long
But my spirit is willing my back it is strong
And when the works over the whisky will pour
We'll dance with the girls upon some foriegn shore

I've sailed the world over for decades or more
And oft times I wonder what I do it for
I don't know the answer it's pleasure and pain
But with life to live over I'd do it again

Where it's wave over wave sea over bow
I'm as happy a man as the sea will allow
There's no other life for a sailor like me
Than to sail the salt sea boys to sail the sea
Where it's wave over wave sea over bow
I'm as happy a man as the sea will allow
There's no other life for a sailor like me
Than to sail the salt sea boys to sail the sea
There's no other life but to sail the salt sea
Ohh ohhhh
