BOBBING ON THE SEA
on: October 21, 2013, 21:03:42
hi guys

just thought i'd open my account with a little sea song
look forward to your comments thanks

 

         BOBBING ON THE SEA
          ------ = = = = ------


 oh down the steps to the water side
 and I'll board my fishing boat
 push away from the land I love
 and to set my girl afloat

 I'll be gone ten days or more
 ride waves as high as mountains
 fish through nights n cold winds blown
 lit up by just one lantern

 so look out there to the edge of the world
 look out tonight for me
 for the dancing light of a fisherman's boat
 bobbing on the sea

 and the sound of my harmonica
 she'll send me off to sleep
 drifting on the open air
 with the soft sweet melody

 so look out there to the edge of the world
 look out tonight for me
 for the dancing light of a fisherman's boat
 bobbing on the sea

 drop deep the nets n pull em in
 with screaming seagulls over head
 a beating heart n bloodshot eyes
 and an aching for me bed

 oh and I will fight the foaming waves
 and shout back and roar in anger
 as I take it's life and soul with love
 before I slowly lift my anchor

 so look out there to the edge of the world
 look out tonight for me
 for the dancing light of a fisherman's boat
 bobbing on the sea

 and the sound of my harmonica
 she'll send me off to sleep
 drifting on the open air
 with the soft sweet melody

 so look out there to the edge of the world
 look out tonight for me
 for the dancing light of a fisherman's boat
 bobbing on the sea
 
 when it's land I sight with weary heart
 I can hear the whiskey calling
 for tonight when I have drunk my share
 on the cobbles I'll be falling

 for tonight when I have drunk my share
 on the cobbles I'll be falling...

Hey what is going on here.My copyright get ignored.  ?fischermans?  ;D ;D ;D ;D
Very good lyrics but may the chorus is sung one time to often.
And my second but:
and the sound of my harmonica
she'll send me off to sleep

Isn?t it the sound (of the harmonica) who send you off to sleep

and the sound of my harmonica
he'll send me off to sleep
or
and the sound of my harmonica
send me off to sleep

Regards Alexander

hey fischermans,

I thought of you when I wrote this ha ha

yeah you could be right about the chorus maybe one to many times in there
got carried away on the waves,

and the harmonica mmm i'll have a good think on that one

thanks for your feed back,
                                           tony.

hey suzy,

thanks for those lovely words, means a lot from you
yeah where this came from,  me and my wife went to Portugal on hols
and every night when we were sat having a meal or walking along the sea front at night
you could see the fishing boats right out on the edge of the sea bobbing lights

and it was nice in the day seeing them go down the steps and pushing away from the wall

yeah dutchbeat has asked me if he can have a go with piano,  looking forward to it,  thanks again suzy,

                                                                                                 tony.
