Title:         BOSTON LADY
Songwriter:         John Stewart
Lyrics:         A cat-o-ninetails cracks on a small of your back
And your sail lies slack in the sun
Your ships lying dead and the deck's turning red
In the back of my head, a prayer I said
To see my Boston lady

There's a hurricane blowing on the eastern sea
But the storm ain't meaning a thing to me
Been adrift here for ninety-nine days
Lord of the wind I will find a way
To see my Boston lady
My Boston lady

And I pray to the wind on a Christian hymn
To see my Boston lady
And I pray to the wind on a Christian hymn
To see my Boston lady

A cat-o-ninetails cracks on a small of your back
And your sail lies slack in the sun
Your ships lying dead and the deck's turning red
In the back of my head a prayer I said
To see my Boston lady
My Boston lady

And I pray to the wind on a Christian hymn
To see my Boston lady
And I pray to the wind on a Christian hymn
To see my Boston lady
My Boston lady
My Boston lady

That was fast. I'm grateful for the lyrics and the link. I've only known the first verse all these years.

Thirty years I've been trying to find this song. I knew only a fraction of the lyrics but it stayed with me all this time. I remember hearing it on WWYZ which I think was in Hartford CT. I listened from Eastern Long Island NY.
Many Thanks.
