Subject: Lyr Add: A SAILOR'S SKY (Alan Bell)
From: s&r
Date: 28 Dec 11 - 06:32 AM

Oh give me a sailor's sky
in the warm glow of evening
And I know that by and by
in the still light of the dawn
I will walk upon the shore
And search the broad horizon
Looking for my man
When tomorrow comes

As my babes lie fast asleep
in the soft night sighing
Her thoughts run still and deep
to that ocean far away
Where the wind blows wild and free
On my man ever sailing
Oh blow him home to me
when tomorrow comes

When that day arrives
there will be a new beginning
Time to share our lives
And be as one again
For I know he loves me so
But the sea is his life's calling
It's hard for him to go
When tomorrow comes

Oh give me a sailor's sky
in the warm glow of evening
And I know that by and by
in the still night of the dawn
I will walk upon the shore
And search the broad horizon
Looking for my man
When tomorrow comes


Written here in the first person to be sung by a woman. Also can be sung in the third person by a man (she for me etc.)

One of my favourite songs of Alan's from his suite Wind Sail Sea and Sky
