The Lee Shore

David Crosby
Language: English



Wheel gull spin and glide…
You've got no place to hide
It's cause you don't need one.

All along the lee shore
Shells lie scattered in the sand
Winking up like shining eyes at me,
From the sea

Here is one like sunrise,
older than you know
It's still lying there where some careless wave
Forgot it long ago

When I woke this morning
Dove beneath my floating home
Down below her graceful side
In the turning tide
To watch the sea fish roam

There I heard a story
From the sailors of the Sandra Marie
There's another island a days' run away from here
And it's empty and free

From here to Venezuela
Nothing more than to see
Than a hundred thousand islands
Flung like jewels upon the sea
For you and me.

Sunset smells of dinner
Women are calling at me to end my tales
But perhaps I'll see you the next quiet place…
I furl my sails
