"Sailor's Boots" as written by and Francis Edward Turner....
If I had been born two hundred years ago
I would have been a sailor and sailing I would go
I'd sail across the capes and around the seven seas and then back home
If I had been born two hundred years ago

And I would know the waters and the waters would know me
And I would cut across the waves and be as happy as can be
I'd be landless, I'd be loveless, I'd be flight and fancy free
And I would know the waters and the waters would know me

When I think about the time and place where I was born
I wonder if the hands of fate had slipped and placed me wrong
Because there a ships I could have sailed and sailor's boots I could have worn
When I think about the time and place where I was born

The ocean is still out there magnificent and wide
She's got open arms to hold me and endless space to hide
And the only things that hold me back are the things I hold inside
The ocean is still out there magnificent and wide

And Sailing I should go
