lyrics

I met him in a Tavern, I hadn't been in this town for long
He soaked my night in whiskey so I regaled him with a song
We sat exchanging hard luck stories, laughing hard at what we'd done
When he left I heard the wind start crying,

"There's one less Pirate upon this ship
A little less Rock, a little less Roll
There's a little less sound from the Telecaster now
But this ship keeps sailing on."

Now the sea was full but rising, like potential in a child
The beauty and the power, so infinite so wild
But you had to listen to the sirens, go taste that final kiss
But I only heard the wind still crying,

"There's one less Pirate upon this ship
A little less Rock, a little less Roll
There's a little less sound from the Telecaster now
But this ship keeps sailing on."

Now we're standing in our own reflections, tears dancing with our smiles
But I just heard the wind, she whispered,

"There's one less Pirate upon this ship
A little less Rock, a little less Roll
There's a little less sound from the Telecaster now
But this ship keeps sailing on."
