about

This song is about a trip my daughter and I made to Bald Head Island N.C. to visit our cousin who was working there for the summer. The lyrics for the bridge are taken from a sailors prayer inscribed on a stone outside the island chapel.

lyrics

Take the tram to our house, when you get off the ferry. You do not have to tip these, boys who might hang around, waiting. We live on the Keelson Row, and if, they try to tell you that it doesn't exist, remind them, and again. The water was cold and the current was swift, the foxes were thick there they came and they went, and we made small bowls from the clay and the drift, and the drift, and again. Deep peace of the running wave to you, deep peace of the quiet earth to you, deep peace of the shining stars to you!
