Are you what they call a sailor?
Is your heart restless and free?
With a sailor’s grave tattooed upon your arm
sinking steadily
Have you heard about that daughter?
The one who’s body just gave up?
Oh, someone said that she was your lover
but I doubt that very much

Yes, it’s true I am a sailor
In fact I am the one that you have heard about
and I sail my ship for all to see
I’ve been doing so for many years
and that’s enough for all of your questioning
I just do what I’m supposed to do

And sail away, sail away, sail away
And sail away, sail away, sail away

Deborah was only 18
she wore my bracelets nearly every day
you she used to give me the cigarettes
and I don’t know what went wrong
