"Like A Ship" as written by Jeff Lynne, Tom Petty, George Harrison and Bob Dylan....
Like a ship on the sea, her love rose over me
Like a ship on the sea, her love rose over me
Go 'way, go 'way, let me be.

Like a weepin' willow tree, her love grows over me
Like a weepin' willow tree, her love grows over me
Go 'way, go 'way, let me be.

(Hauntin' me like a ship on the sea)

Standin' on the white cliffs of Dover
Lookin' out into space
Another channel to cross over
Another dream to chase.

The night is dark and dreary
The wind is howling down
Your heart is hanging heavy
When your sweet love ain't around.

Like a leaf on a tree, her love is shakin' me
Like a leaf on a tree, her love is shakin' me
Go 'way, go 'way, let me be

(Hauntin' me like a ship on the sea)
Like a leaf, like a ship on the sea.
(Hauntin' me like a ship on the sea)

    General CommentOne of Bob Dylan's best tunes of the '80s, as were most of his Wilbury's contributions ... I think his participation in this group gave him a second wind when he needed it the most.
