Lyrics

I am standing here today without a dollar to my name
I’ve paid my dues, I’ve jumped my claim
I’m a just a child of the wind.

And I have sailed, I have sunk
I’ve died of thirst, and I’ve been drunk
Everything I own is packed into a trunk
It’s at the bottom of the ocean.

When the ships go in, the ships go out
The tide rolls in, and my days run out
Everyday I’m on the watch for the boat I lost
I’m all washed up
Yes I’m all washed up

I have walked down foreign streets
I have heard secrets that I didn’t keep
And I once loved a girl, she was so sweet
She rotted out all of my teeth

Oh yes the ships go in, the ships go out
The tide rolls in, and my days run out
Everyday I’m on the watch for the boat I lost
I’m all washed up
Yes I’m all washed up

It’s easy to get home under a tail wind
Even when your timbers rot, your anchor’s dropped
Your seas are chop, yes you’re all washed up.

I’ve been baked, I’ve been burned
I’ve been loved, and I’ve been spurned
I’ve forgotten more than I have ever learned
It’s all at the bottom of a bottle.

When the ships go in, the ships go out
The tide rolls in, and my days run out
Everyday I’m on the watch for the boat I lost
I’m all washed up
Yes I’m all washed up
