Artist/Band: Great Big Sea
Lyrics for Song: Wave Over Wave
Lyrics for Album: UP [1995]



Oh me name Able Rogers a share man am I

On a three-masted scooner from Twilingate Isle

I've been the world over North, South, East and West

But the middle of nowhere's where I likes it best



Where it's wave over wave sea over bow

I'm as happy a man as the sea will allow

There's no other life for a sailor like me

Than to sail the salt sea boys to sail the sea

There's no other life but to sail the salt sea



Well I leave my wife lonely ten months of the year

For she built me a home and raised my children there

She never come out to bid farewell to me

Or can why a sailor must sail the salt sea



Where it's wave over wave sea over bow

I'm as happy a man as the sea will allow

There's no other life for a sailor like me

Than to sail the salt sea boys to sail the sea

There's no other life but to sail the salt sea



Oh the work it is hard and the hours are long

But my spirit is willing my back it is strong

And when the works over the whisky will pour

We'll dance with the girls upon some foreign shore



I've sailed the world over for decades or more

And oft times I wonder what I do it for

I don't know the answer it's pleasure and pain

But with life to live over I'd do it again



Where it's wave over wave sea over bow

I'm as happy a man as the sea will allow

There's no other life for a sailor like me

Than to sail the salt sea boys to sail the sea

Where it's wave over wave sea over bow

I'm as happy a man as the sea will allow

There's no other life for a sailor like me

Than to sail the salt sea boys to sail the sea

There's no other life but to sail the salt sea

Ohh ohhhh
