Father Rose when they told him
Your son's been stolen
He's under there kicking his feet
His heart steeps in salt-water dreams

One August night watching the harbor fade
He told a girl a secret he had saved
He said, Look up, Look up the moon is a ship's keel
That's my daddy's boat, he's up there spinning his wheel


And so another day fades and i begin to watch this horizon burn


Father Rose when they told him
Your son's been stolen
He's under there kickin' his sheets
His heart steeps in salt-water dreams


Now he's downstairs kissing the bottle
While mama's tappin' the bible
Through the doors I can hear her prayers
She cries, Gimme a little more
Won't you gimme a little more
Out of him

One August night watching the harbor fade
He told a girl a secret he had saved
He said I'm alone, like a bouy
Miles, miles from shore
Nobody take my direction anymore

Father Rose when they told him
Your son's been stolen
He's under there kicking his sheets
His heart steeps in salt-water dreams
Father Rose when they told him
Your son's been stolen
He's under there kicking his feet
His heart steeps in salt-water dreams
