Wooden Ships - Live

Wooden Ships - Live

August 16, 2014



Originally performed by Crosby, Stills, and Nash

If you smile at me, I will understand
'Cause that is somethin' everybody in the world 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'd like to know
Can you tell me please, who won the war?

Say, can I have some of your purple berries?
Yes, I've been eating them for six or seven weeks now
Haven't got sick once
Probably keep us all alive

Wooden ships on the water, very free and 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

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 blowing warm
Out of the south over my shoulder
And I guess I'm going set a course
And you know we will surely, we will surely go
