Sail Away

 

I set foot in Port Royal on the fifth day of May Sail Away Sail Away

I was told by the guvner to leave straight away Sail Away Sail Away

 

When peace is declared the battle begins Sail Away Sail Away

The poor soldiers pay for the rich man’s sins Sail Away Sail  Away

 

you can  live forever through your daughters and sons Sail Away Sail Away

But if you can't even feed them what good have you done Sail Away Sail Away

 

Your face will be etched on a wisp of smoke Sail Away Sail Away

The waves will repeat every word that you spoke Sail Away Sail Away

 

when the war is over what's  soldier to do,   Sail Away Sail Away

no-one  gives a damn what you've been through  Sail Away Sail Away

 

Wear the jewels you have plundered on the Spanish Main Sail Away Sail Away

Or go back to London and wear Bracelets of chain Sail Away Sail Away

 

There's no telling how we will die in the end Sail Away Sail Away

But we surely will die every foe every friend Sail Away Sail Away

 

At the end of his life every king's overthrown Sail Away Sail Away

A noble profession will buy a fancy headstone Sail Away Sail Away

 

You could find yourself in the local stockade Sail Away Sail Away

It's the price that you'll pay for the money you've made Sail Away Sail Away

 

Your name will be etched on a wisp of smoke sail away sail away

In a hurricane's whisper your name  be invoked sail away sail away
