Speaking of sea songs that won't leave me be even though I can't remember the words:

The chorus runs,

"Ride, ride, ride the wild ocean,
Sail, sail, sail the cold sea;
You take a chance when you take to the ocean;
You pay your dues most dutifully."

And the song is about a modern fishing boat that was thrashed to death on some rocks while the crew helplessly watched.

Here are Teri's track notes from Jim's link:

This is the true story of a small fishing boat named the Simbo II that went up on the rocks and sank near Sitka, Alaska, leaving the skipper and myself stranded on an island for three days. The hardest part of the experience was watching the boat, my friend's livelihood, being tossed and beaten by the waves on the shore.
