    At the factory

    Do you remember
    Standing on the shore,
    Head in the clouds,
    Your pockets filled with dreams
    Bound for glory
    On the seven seas of life,
    But, the ocean is deeper than it seems

    The wind was with you
    When you left on the morning tide,
    You set your sail for an island in the sun,
    On the horizon, dark clouds up ahead,
    For the storm has just begun

    Take me with you,
    Take me far away,
    Lead me to the distant shore

    Sail your ship across the water,
    Spread your wings across the sky
    Take the time to see
    You're the one who holds the key,
    Or sailing ships will pass you by

    You cry for mercy,
    When you think you've lost your way,
    You drift alone, if all your hope is gone
    So find the strength and you will see
    You control, your destiny,
    After all is said and done

    So take me with you,
    Take me far away,
    An' lead me to the distant shore

    Sail your ship across the water,
    Spread your wings across the sky
    Take the time to see
    You're the one who holds the key,
    Or sailing ships will pass,
    Sailing ships will pass you,
    Sailing ships will pass you by

    Take me with you,
    Take me far away,
    We'll ride the wind across the sky
    Spread your wings and you will see
    You control, your destiny,
    So sailing ships don't pass you by

    So take me with you,
    Take me far away,
    We'll ride the wind across the sky
    Spread your wings and you will see
    You control, your destiny,
    So sailing ships don't pass,
    So sailing ships don't pass you,
    So sailing ships don't pass you by

    Baby, baby, baby, baby,
    You'll find that you're the only one
    Can sail your ship across the sky
    One Life

    Since he's a Grateful Dead fan, I'm thinking "Lost Sailor" ...


    Compass card is spinning
    Helm is swingin' to and fro
    Ooh where's the dog star
    Ooh where's the moon
    You're lost sailor
    You've been too long at sea


    Some days the gales are howling
    Some days the sea is still as glass
    Oh, reef the mainsail
    Oh, lash the mast
    You're lost sailor
    You've been too long at sea


    Now the shore lights beckon
    Yeah there's a price for being free


    Hear the sea birds cry
    There's a ghost wind blowin'
    It's calling you to that misty swirling sea
    Till the chains of your dreams are broken
    No place in this world you can be


    You're lost sailor
    You've been way too long at sea
    Now the shore lights beckon
    Yeah there's a price for being free


    Drifting yeah drifting
    Yeah drifting and dreaming


    'Cause there's a place you've never been
    Maybe a place you've never seen
    You can hear her calling on the wind


    Go on and drift your life away
    Yeah just drifting and dreaming


    Maybe drift your life away
    Drifting and dreaming


    Yes I'm going on a dream
    Maybe going on a dream
    Maybe going on a feeling
    Maybe going on a feeling

    Got out of town
    on a boat
    going to Southern islands
    Sailing a reach
    before a following sea.
    She was making for the trades
    on the outside
    and the downhill run to Papeete

    Off the wind on this heading lie the Marquesas
    we got eighty feet of the waterline
    nicely making way
    In a noisy bar in Avalon, I tried to call you
    But on a midnight watch I realized why twice you ran away

    Think about
    Think about how many times I have fallen
    Spirits are using me, larger voices calling
    What heaven brought you and me
    cannot be forgotten

    I have been around the world
    looking for that woman-girl
    who knows love can endure
    And you know it will, and you know it will

    When you see the Southern Cross for the first time
    you understand now why you came this way
    Cause the truth you might be running from is so small
    But it's as big as the promise, the promise of a coming day

    So I'm sailing for tomorrow, my dreams are a dying
    And my love is an anchor tied to you, tied with a silver chain
    I have my ship and all her flags are a flying
    She is all that I have left and music is her name

    Think about how many times I have fallen. Spirits are using me, larger voices calling
    What heaven brought you and me cannot be forgotten
    I have been around the world, looking for that woman-girl who knows love can endure
    And you know it will, and you know it will

    So we cheated and we lied and we tested
    and we never failed to fail
    it was the easiest thing to do
    You will survive being bested
    Somebody fine will come along, make me forget about loving you
    at the Southern Cross
    One Life

    As the son of a son of a sailor
    I went out on the sea for adventure
    Expanding the view of the captain and crew
    Like a man just released from indenture

    As a dreamer of dreams and a travelin' man
    I have chalked up many a mile
    Read dozens of books about heroes and crooks
    And I learned much from both of their styles

    Son of a son, son of a son
    Son of a son of a sailor
    Son of a gun, load the last ton
    One step ahead of the jailer

    Now away in the near future
    Southeast of disorder
    You can shake the hand of the mango man
    As he greets you at the border

    And the lady she hails from Trinidad
    Island of the spices
    Salt for your meat, and cinnamon sweet
    And the rum is for all your good vices

    Haul the sheet in as we ride on the wind
    That our forefathers harnessed before us
    Hear the bells ring as the tide rigging sings
    Its a son of a gun of a chorus

    Where it all ends I can't fathom my friends
    If I knew I might toss out my anchor
    So I'll cruise along always searchin' for songs
    Not a lawyer a thief or a banker

    But a son of a son, son of a son
    Son of a son of a sailor
    Son of a gun, load the last ton
    One step ahead of the jailer

    Im just a son of a son, son of a son
    Son of a son of a sailor
    The seas in my veins, my tradition remains
    Im just glad I don't live in a trailer

    "It's easy to grin
    when your ship comes in
    and you've got the stock market beat.
    But the man worthwhile
    is the man who can smile
    when his shorts are too tight in the seat".

    If I thought I was going to live this long I'd have taken better care of myself!
