“We’re leavin’ today, sailin’ for glory.” There was a time when great ships sailed the seas, moved only by the breath of God.

Lyrics

Leavin’ today sailin’ for glory.
Finding my way lost in the story.
Bringing it home, from so long ago.
Living on dreams, sailing on vapor
Setting the sail cutting the anchor
Bringing it home, from so long ago.

The heat rose from the water
Like smoke from a dirty flame.
From all across the nation the people came
To stand along the shoreline
And watch the ships come in,
Dreaming dreams of how it might have been. Singin

Chorus:
Roll, haul away rollin’.
Gone day and maybe never again.
She was food for the dreamer,
Life for the disbeliever,
Home for the wandering children all.
Left us wondering all.

Verse:
An old sailor down by the battery,
An old Jonah looking pale.
He raised his hand just as the ships set sail.
Then he clenched his fist and he turned to me
Just as the ships went by,
And I could see the ocean in his eyes. He sang

Verse: Now the sailing ships are a memory
I can’t recall their names
Only the ocean stays the same.
In the dark sometimes she calls to me
Across the miles and years.
And at times, you know, I swear that I can hear
Her singing

Chorus:
Leavin’ today sailin’ for glory.
Finding my way lost in the story.
Bringing it home, from so long ago.
