"Like A Ship" as written by Jeff Lynne, Tom Petty, George Harrison and Bob Dylan....
(One, two, three)

Like a ship on the sea
Her love rolls over me
Like a ship on the sea
Her love rolls over me

Go away, go away
Let me be

Like a weeping willow tree
Her love grows over me
Like a weeping willow tree
Her love grows over me

Go away, go away
Let me be

(Hauntin' me like a ship on the sea)

Standing 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 away
Go away
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.
