Story

Ships set to sea during storms to try and ride them out, but sometimes they didn't make it. One of my favorites to play with Tony backing me up on bass.

Lyrics

The wind shouts her warning, with silent tales spoken Of those lost at sea and survivors left broken The waves start to rise up as darkness is falling The tempest’s dark rage to each man is calling Thoughts turn to families, of widows alone And children with fathers who never came home Pray see the morning, pray see the dawn The wind lashes out taking rigging and mast Those not tied in overboard they are cast Down below deck, men run out of air The cold water rising turns fear to despair As the bow is pulled under, the sea takes her pay For the bounty she gives us most other days Pray see the morning, pray see the dawn After the storm, on shore some were found Offered up by the sea, close to home they had drowned On a high ridge above the fog covered bay At morning’s first light, it’s here that they’re laid Remember says the preacher, we must travel the seas Just know she can take you whenever she please By God’s good grace we travel the sea Just know she can take you whenever she please Pray For the Morning
