all lights burning bright lyrics – david francey

Loading...

we were standing the last watch
at the close of the day
three days on the water
out from thunder bay

‘cross superior, huron
and into st. clair
on a bright day in summer
i found myself there

dead calm on the water
as blue as the sky
and we waved from the water
as we slowly p-ssed by

we entered lake erie
it was late in the day
you could see that storm coming
from a mile away

we had all lights burning bright
all lights burning bright
we had all lights burning bright
all lights burning bright

that storm overtook us
and it fell like the night
and the point and the island
they p-ssed out of sight

but we sailed on rock steady
set course through the storm
as the sky fell upon us
and the wind drove us on

and i thought to myself
i’d be just like this ship
if i kept my light burning
on every trip

the watch it was ended
with the turn of the night
and i wrote in that log book
all lights burning bright

we had all lights burning bright
all lights burning bright
we had all lights burning bright
all lights burning bright
