Victoria Nautical Song Circle's
February 2007 Song Of The Month


Words & Music: Tom Kastle
Cold winds blow across the harbour
Cold winds on the inland sea
Same winds that called our fathers
Cold winds calling me
Ice forms on the deck and whiskers
Light a fire and stay below
Shut up tight, the wind's a whisper
Pass the bottle, it's time to go.
Rise up, rise up and dog the hatches
Mind your hands they're cracked and sore
Check the lines on your way inland
Time to take a job ashore
Summer spray and full moon autumns
Wood and water, frost and stone
Early snows mean early winters
Taste each season as it goes
