Way, Sail Away

MIDI


To the tune of "Haul Away, Joe"

Chorus: Way, Sail away, we'll sail away together Way, Sail away, to where the stars glow

When I was a young child my momma she done told me
Way, Sail away, to where the stars glow
That if I didn't leave this world, my brain would grow all moldy
Way, Sail away, to where the stars glow

Chorus

As soon as I was old enough, I took my passage to the moon,
Way, Sail away, to where the stars glow
But as I watched the earth-rise, I knew that I'd go further soon
Way, Sail away, to where the stars glow

Chorus

I booked a place on frozen Mars, joined their little colony
Way, Sail away, to where the stars glow
Then set out as a miner, with all the asteroids to see
Way, Sail away, to where the stars glow

Chorus

I passed the eye of Jupiter, but still I hadn't found my place
Way, Sail away, to where the stars glow
Then I passed by Saturn's rings, kept trav'ling onward out t'ward space
Way, Sail away, to where the stars glow

Chorus

Now that I am old and worn, I've finally found my destiny
Way, Sail away, to where the stars glow
For I have reached a different star, with planets of my own to see
Way, Sail away, to where the stars glow

Chorus x 2
