"Sailor's Song (Go Ye Now in Peace)"
Music and Lyrics Justin Karpinos (c)2007

You can sit underneath the Spanish moss
And you can earn to tie a sailor's cross
And your sisters and daughters will wait by the pier
And remember the evenings when you were still here
But you point your boat out to some foreign shore
And you're crossing the oceans with great things in store for you
Christen your vessel with tears and champagne
And set sail in the driving rain

Go ye now in peace, go ye now in peace
May the good fortune find you with a good wind behind you, now in peace

And in the morning we'll walk down the shoreline
At the water's edge back home in North Carolina
We'll watch the tide rising from our windowsill
And remember your childhood and the Tennessee hills
But you point your boat out to some foreign land
And there's no one around you, just water and sand
And you Christen your vessel with tears and champagne
And set sail in the driving rain

Go ye now in peace, go ye now in peace
May the good fortune find you with a good wind behind you, now in peace

(mandolin and flute solos)

Go ye now in peace, go ye now in peace
May the good fortune find you with a good wind behind you, now in peace
