Dory and a Single Oar

Where the ocean meets the dawn
Red-Yellow punching through a blueberry scrim
it hits you squarely in the jaw

Pull the blanket, draw the shade
Sandblast the lager hanging over my head
A half a deck ‘n wooden leg

Phantom in the Storm
Lighthouse in the distance
Dory and a Single Oar

Cigarette and steering wheel
A whole lotta smokin’ ‘fore a tug on the line
I table fork the deep blue sea

Never mind the warning signs
Red sun is telling you the fish gonna fry
I turn my back against the tide (my oh my)

Phantom in the Storm
Lighthouse in the distance
Dory and a Single Oar

Boats ‘a rockin,’ that old Nor’ Easter’s blowing
I’m hip deep in ocean
Tie a rope around the mast I’m holding and Pray
(get down on your knees and Pray)
