lyrics

I met a young man in the Anchor & Chain
He was hollow of eye and a-burning of brain
He said please help me for I do not know
Which of these vessels might carry me home
And I said it’s not luck, it’s just time
Til we’re sunk beneath the roiling brine
But climb aboard son
Don’t fear the tide
We’ll drink every drop
And everything will be fine
He said I’ve been waiting for the day to come round
When all of my problems drift into the sound
And leave me sheltering on the shore
But the peace it won’t come and I can’t wait no more
And I said it’s not luck, it’s just time
Til we’re sunk beneath the roiling brine
But climb aboard son
Don’t fear the tide
We’ll drink every drop
And everything will be fine
Well here is a knife fashioned with skill
The finest of tools you can bend to your will
This is your freedom, there is nothing else
….
And I said it’s not luck, it’s just time
‘Til we’re sunk beneath the roiling brine
But climb aboard son
Don’t fear the tide
We’ll drink every drop
And everything will be fine
