Wooden Ships

Stills & Nash Crosby


If you smile at me I will understand

Everybody everywhere does in the same language
I can see by your coat, my friend you're from the other side
There's just one thing I got to know

For six or seven weeks now haven't got sick once
Probably keep us both alive

Wooden ships on the water very free and easy
Easy, you know the way it's supposed to be
Silver people on the shoreline let us be
Talkin' 'bout very free and easy


Horror grips us as we watch you die
All we can do is echo your anguished cries
Stare as all human feelings die
We are leaving, you don't need us


Aaaah ...
Go take your sister then by the hand
Lead her away from this foreign land
Far away where we might laugh again
We are leaving, you don't need us


And it's a fair wind
Blowin' warm out of the south over my shoulder
Guess I'll set a course and go
