about

Most sailor songs are about the lure of the sea. This one is about the lure of home.

lyrics

SOMETIMES A SAILOR
© Bob Wright

he ain’t scared of pirates
and he ain’t scared of storms
but...
sometimes a sailor just wants to go home

he can feel the salt air
blowing deep in his bones
but...
sometimes a sailor just wants to go home

going home (clapclapclap)
going home (clapclapclap)
tin in his pocket
and time of his own
going home (clapclapclap)
going home (clapclapclap)
but...
sometimes a sailor just wants to go home


he’ll rock in the crows nest
all the way round the Horn
but...
sometimes a sailor just wants to go home

he’ll scrub all the decks
on his knees with a stone
but...
sometimes a sailor just wants to go home

going home (clapclapclap)
going home (clapclapclap)
tin in his pocket
and time of his own
going home (clapclapclap)
going home (clapclapclap)
but...
sometimes a sailor just wants to go home

he can dance like a wave
he can sing like a whale
but...
sometimes a sailor just wants to go home

he can smile like an angel
when he’s telling ya’ tales
but...
sometimes a sailor just wants to go home

going home (clapclapclap)
going home (clapclapclap)
tin in his pocket
and time of his own
going home (clapclapclap)
going home (clapclapclap)
but...
sometimes a sailor just wants to go home

now it’s rare that a sailor
stays long on the land
cause the walking is strange
and the people ain’t tan
he’ll be gone the next time
that the wind starts to blow
but...
sometimes a sailor just wants to go home


going home (clapclapclap)
going home (clapclapclap)
tin in his pocket
and time of his own
going home (clapclapclap)
going home (clapclapclap)
but...
sometimes a sailor just wants to go home

about

Bob Wright/ Harbortown New York, New York

He is a multi-instrumentalist, an award winning songwriter and Bob Wright songs are often mistaken for traditional songs because their immigrant roots run deep beneath the surface of America and back to the places they came from for nurturing and inspiration. They surface in a modern world, constructed with a modern sensibility and a comforting resonance with the past. ... more
