Subject: Lyr Add: SONG FOR THE CAPTAIN (Parker & Hansell)
From: maeve

SONG FOR THE CAPTAIN
Words and music by K.A. Parker and Jon Hansell
As sung by Roger Whittaker

When I was young I’d sit on his knee
He’d fill me up with his tales of the sea
We’d go out sailing on crystal-lit oceans
Riding the tides and the foam
Follow the sunset to far foreign places
Sometimes we’d never come home
From the sea.

Time after time he’d take me along
Aboard the dreams, he went sailing on.
Riding the rhythms of tidewater canyons
Racing the raw morning air
Watching the pirate ships on the horizon
The wind blowing soft through my hair
From the sea.

Now I am grown. He’s gone away
Borne on the breeze that sweeps through the bay.
Still, I remember the stories he told me
Of sailors and whalers long dead.
Closing my eyes now, I see them before me
Sailing the ship in my head
To the sea.
To the sea,
To the sea.

Thanks Bugsy. I have watched that video, but was hoping to find the lyrics and possibly the chords written out as transcribing from a record even when it is by someone as good as Roger Whittaker, it is not always clear what some of the lyrics are.

Roger Whittaker -Song for the can pain. It's on his 1980 Voyages CD.

Cheers

Please can this be posted again?
It is rare that such a request receives no replies at all.
The lyrics will do without the chords if necessary. I should be able to work them out myself.
