THE FOG AND THE WIND AND THE RAIN
Copyright 2004 Dave King

Well my boat, she’s a waitin’ in the harbor
She’s gonna carry me out to sea
Past the shoreline and the lighthouse
Past the clang of the buoys

There’s got to be a better place somewhere
Where a man can more than just survive
‘Cause here there ain’t nothin’ happenin’ at all
Say goodbye to the harbor lights.

There’s just no reason to stay here no more
Nothin’ to lose and nothin’ to gain
So I’ll just be a-sailin’ on
Through the fog and the wind and the rain

It used to be a good livin’
Workin’ as a lobsterman
We’d pull up the traps at the end of the day
Get paid and head on into town

But now the fish don’t bite, and there’s no high tide
Everything’s gone down
I lost my girl when she ran off
With a guy from the dark side of town

There’s just no reason to stay here no more
Nothin’ to lose and nothin’ to gain
So I’ll just be a-sailin’ on
Through the fog and the wind and the rain

I hear they might be bitin’
A hundred miles or so down the coast
I’m on my way into the cold, dark night
Like a wounded empty ghost

There’s just no reason to stay here no more
Nothin’ to lose and nothin’ to gain
So I’ll just be a-sailin’ on
Through the fog and the wind and the rain
