    Default Sailing Home

    I have heard the whale-fish singing in the frozen Arctic seas

    I have heard the palm trees whispering on the Polynesian breeze

    But the sweetest sound a sailor hears wherever wild waves pound:

    Our journey's almost over boys and we are homeward bound


    Homeward bound to wives and sweethearts

    Homeward bound an easy run

    Where we shall lay our sea chests down

    And rest with labour done


    I have drunk the rum in Kingston and the beer in Hamburg town

    I have drunk with nameless dark-skinned men until the room spun round

    But the brew that tastes the sweetest is the one where home is found

    Our journey's almost over boys and we are homeward bound


    Homeward bound to wives and sweethearts

    Homeward bound an easy run

    Where we shall lay our sea chests down

    And rest with labour done


    I have burned in tropic sunshine, I have shivered in the ice

    I have done things I am sorry for when fate has rolled the dice

    But now my work is ended and the time has come around

    Our journey's almost over boys and we are homeward bound


    Homeward bound to wives and sweethearts

    Homeward bound an easy run

    Where we shall lay our sea chests down

    And rest with labour done

    This is a song written by Peter and I was wondering if I can post audio on this site/thread

    Flows in a lovely way that feels like an evening swell. A ballad - well done.
