Sleepless Sailor

Jennifer Culley Curtin
Kate Rusby


When I heard this song on Kate Rusby's album "Sleepless" I just fell in love with it.  Don't have a clue what it is about - but I found it very soothing nontheless.  If you haven't heard Kate sing, make sure you check her out - her voice is phenomenal!


The Sleepless Sailor

I once was a sailor, a young man and brave
La da dum day, la da dum dee
My nights were once sleepless,
My peace I did crave
Carry me home to the sea

La da dum day, la da dum dee
Drift away sailor boys on the deep sea
Worry no more for you're safe now with me
Rest in my arms and my sweet melody

One night as I'm stood on the deck in the rain
La da dum day, la da dum dee
I heard a sweet voice and she's singing my name
Carry me back to the sea


Oh rock me so gently ye oceans so deep
La da dum day, la da dum dee
I wish I was back, cause I think I can't sleep
Carry me home to the sea
