Lyrics
I never use to miss the chance
To climb upon his knee
And listen to the many tales of life upon the sea

We'd go sailing back on barkentines
We talk of things he did
Tomorrow just a day away for the captain and the kid

His world had gone from sailing ships
To raking mom's back yard
He never could adjust to land
Although He tried so hard

We both were growing older then
And Wiser with our years
That's when I came to understand
The course his heart still steers

He died about a month ago
While winter filled the air
And though I cried, I was so proud
To love a man so rare

He's somewhere on the ocean now
That's where he ought to be
With one hand on the starboard rail
He's waving back at me

I never use to miss the chance
To climb upon his knee
And listen to the many tales of life upon the sea

We'd go sailing back on barkentines
We talk of things he did
The world was just a day away for the captain and the kid

For the captain and this kid
