3,000 miles from home,
and there's a river dock.
Me and all the other lost souls,
stay up all night and talk.

Search for constellations,
pouring that whiskey too.
We sail into the sunrise
thinkin' bout nothing but you.

If I get too weary,
I'll just lay down on her shore.
If I grow too hungry,
I know she'll always bring me more.

If my body's aching,
she heals me through and through.
We'll stay up to the sunrise
thinkin' bout nothing but you.

Drove across the country,
stopped in everybody's town.
Good time music lifts me up,
alone it drags me down.

It's been so long now,
but I had these traveling blues
Sailing to the sunrise,
thinkin' bout nothing but you.

I've always done my best,
and tried every way I could.
When I knew the difference,
I always chose good.

Sorry for the times that,
I have not been true.
Sailing to the sunrise,
thinkin' bout nothing bout you.

[Instrumental]

Woke up at 3am,
catch the city-bound train.
Might take me years to get
to this river again.

But in my mind I still dive in,
to waters so blue.
I stay up to the sunrise,
thinkin' bout nothing but you.

One day I'll return to sit,
on that river dock.
Play guitar with all my friends,
drinking whiskey and talk.

Tell 'em how I risked my life and,
I risked my money too.
But in all these years I never,
lost nothing but you.

[Instrumental out]
