    General Commenta lonesome soldier on his way to war.
    always kinda reminds me of the opening scene to saving private Ryan.
    when they were riding the boats to storm on Normandy.

    General CommentA good question is worth more than a hundred answers.

    "Is Captain Kennedy a metaphor for John F. Kennedy?"

    "Does the young mariner like to go to war?"

    "How is it important for the song that his father was an 'American' Captain Kennedy?"

    "What happened (in reality) in Nassau in 1971 that is relevant to this song?"

    "What the hell is meant with the penultimate verse with the 'steel hull freighter'?"

    "Is this a pessimistic song about America?"
