  1. To The Sea

From the recording To The Sea

Lyrics

GAZING OUT ON THIS ROLLING SEA OF BLUEGRASS
SKY OF BLUE AND HORSES ON A PASTURE OF GREEN
SHOULD BE ENOUGH TO MAKE A MAN THANK THE LORD FOR A
HOME HERE IN KENTUCKY
BUT SOMETHING'S MISSING AND I KNOW WHERE I JUST HAVE TO BE
WANT TO SET MY SAILS AGAINST THE WIND, TO REACH OUT OF TORTOLA ONCE AGAIN
YES I'VE GOT TO FOLLOW MY HEART TO THE SEA

THE MOON IS SLIDING DOWN BELOW THE FENCE ROWS
IT MAKES THE STARS OF ORION SO EASY TO SEE
BUT HE'S BRIGHTER IN A BOAT FIFTY MILES OFF THE COAST OF THE
WINDWARD ISLANDS
I'LL TAKE MY BOURBON AND HE'LL SEEM EVEN BRIGHTER TO ME
THERE'S NOTHING WRONG WITH GREEN TOBACCO FIELDS
BUT I GUESS I JUST KNOW THE WAY I FEEL
YES, I'VE GOT TO FOLLOW MY HEART TO THE SEA

NICKI, PACK MY BAGS AND BOOK A FLIGHT FOR A ONE WAY TRIP TO ROADTOWN
AND WHILE YOU'RE AT IT PACK ANOTHER ONE FOR YOU. IT'S TRUE
THAT BEAUTY LIES IN THE EYES OF A NATIVE SON LIVING IN THE BLUEGRASS
BUT AS FOR ME THAT BLUEGRASS IS NOTHING BUT BLUES
I CHOOSE TO SAIL AWAY

A THOUSAND MILES FROM THE NEAREST MISTY MEADOW
A MILLION MORE AND I'LL NEVER LOSE MY MEMORIES
BUT THEY'LL BE STOWED AWAY ON A SLOOP FIFTY MILES OFF THE WINDWARD ISLANDS
THERE TO HELP ME WHEN I NEED SOME COMPANY
GOT TO FIND MY OWN IDENTITY, SEARCHING FOR MY TRUE SERENITY
YES I'VE GOT TO FOLLOW MY HEART TO THE SEA
FOLLOW MY HEART TO THE SEA...
