11. Grey Funnel Line

I don’t mind the rain or the rolling see
The weary night never worries me
But the hardest time in a sailors
Is to watch the sun as it dies away
Here’s one more day on the Grey Funnel Line

The widest ship that sails the sea
Is still a prison for the likes of me
But give me wings like Noah’s dove
And I’ll sail up harbor to the girl I love
Here’s one more day on the Grey Funnel Line

Oh lord if dreams were only real
I’d put my hand on that wooden wheel
And with all my heart I’d turn her ’round
And tell the boys that we’re homeward bound
Here’s one more day on the Grey Funnel Line

I’ll pass the time like some machine
Until blue water turns to green
And I’ll dance on down that walk ashore
And sail the Grey Funnel Line not more
And sail the Grey Funnel Line no more

Traditional, arrangements by Sophie Janna, Margot Merah and Kathryn Claire.
