Lyrics:I am a young mariner headed to war
I'm thinkin' 'bout my family and what it was for

There's water on the wood and the sails feel good
And when I get to shore I hope that I can
kill good

My father was a sailor named Captain Kennedy
He lost his wooden schooner
to the Germans on the sea
Exploded on the water for everyone for everyone to see
And
humiliate that American Captain Kennedy

I saw him in Nassau in 1971
His strength was
failin' but he still ran a run
He worked 'til his fingers wore to the bone
To buy that
wooden schooner and sail on his own

He was known in the islands as hundred foot iron

That steel hull freighter was passin' its time
And time flew by faster with life on the
sea
And the days grew shorter for Captain Kennedy

I am a young mariner headed to
war
I'm thinkin' 'bout my family and what it was for
There's water on the wood and the
sails feel good
And when I get to shore I hope that I can kill good
