I have to go. If you mean "Barges", there have been some threads on it before. If you don't know how to access those threads, someone will help. If no one does, here's one set of lyrics. It's from the www, somewhere.



BARGES

Out of my window, looking in the night
I can see the barges' flickering light
Silently flows the river to the sea
And the barges too go silently

CHORUS:
Barges, I would like to go with you
I would like to sail the ocean blue
Barges have you treasures in your hold
Do you fight with pirates brave and bold

Out of my window, looking in the night
I can see the barges' flickering light
Starboard shines green and port is glowing red
I can see them flickering far ahead

CHORUS

How my heart longs to sail away with you
As you sail across the ocean blue
But I must sit beside my window dear
And watch you sail away from here

CHORUS

Out of my window looking in the night
I can see the barges' flickering light
Harbor ahead and anchorage in view
I will find my resting place with you

CHORUS

Away from my window on into the night
I will watch 'til they are out of sight
Taking their cargo far across the sea
How I'd wish that someday they would take me

CHORUS

Out of my window looking through the night
I can see the barges' flickering light
People are sailing far and far away
And I hope to go with them one day

CHORUS^^^

I want to know this song too. Here are the lyrics as I can recall:

Sailin away from Boston town
Leavin to sail the horn around
This is where I long to be
Sailin on the lonely seas
Look away
Hey away
Sail away

I can't figure out what the name of it either. Any help would be much appreciated.

Sailin Away
1
Sailin' away from Boston town/ Leavin to sail the horn around
This is where I long to be/ Sailin on the lonely seas
Look away---Hey away--Sail away

Chorus
A cold north wind is blowin' hard
And I'm bound for better seas my boy
Bound for better seas
Look away--Hey away---Sail away

2
There is not one boy (girl) who's true or kind
There is not one (boy) girl who I call mine
Starry nights and stormy seas are all I've got that's true to me
Look away--Hey away---Sail away

"Peace" is correct - all the other words listed are for Sail Away Ladies. I can remember singing Barges when I was a little kid at GS camp. (And I even remember some of the words to this day)

So I LOVED this song when sitting around the campfire.

I used to have the songbook that had this in it, but my parents got rid of it once I went to college.

I added a third verse that was missing.

Enjoy!

Sailin Away
1
Sailin' away from Boston town/ Leavin to sail the horn around
This is where I long to be/ Sailin on the lonely seas
Look away---Hey away--Sail away

Chorus
A cold north wind is blowin' hard
And I'm bound for better seas my boy
Bound for better seas
Look away--Hey away---Sail away

2
There is not one boy (girl) who's true or kind
There is not one (boy) girl who I call mine
Starry nights and stormy seas are all I've got that's true to me
Look away--Hey away---Sail away

3
I once did swear to quite the seas
For a blue eyed boy from Kentucky
He loved money more than me so on these seas I'd rather be
Look away—-Hey away—-Sail away

I am making a cd of my favorite songs and was so happy that just a month ago you posted all the verses to this beautiful tune. The lyrics I learned warned not to trust a blue-eyed girl from Albany, but otherwise were very similar. Thanks for making this available and thanks to the person who made the first two verses available. It seems that this song is only remembered by former campers of Camp Judy Layne. Like the sailor for whom it speaks, it will soon look away- hey away- sail away...

I'm disappointed.
I thought this thread was going to be about the tune the BBC plays before the Shipping forecast on radio.

I learned "Sailin' Away from Boston Town" at camp Judy Layne in the summer of '72 from Mary Sue Webb. Glad to have all the lyrics -- I only remembered the 1st and last verse.

I was looking this up to see if there were more verses I didn't know and I find it fascinating that Campy Judy Layne seems to be the only source for this. Wonder who wrote it. This is my favorite and my sister and I still sing it together <3
