Trinity Bay – lyrics

The air is warm upon his skin as the balmy breezes blow
He’s often thinking of his kin, t’will soon be time to go.
His eyes see down a list of wares, stored in the holds below.Sugar cane and jugs of rum, good drink when the cold winds blow.

Captain Ned is heading home tonight.
Back to Trinity Bay.
The wind is blowing steady.
A full moon lights his way.

The days at sea are long and hard as they stretch into the night.
High atop the tallest mast, a million stars in sight.
The farther north the boat does sail, the colder turns the sea.A prayer that’s said one time each day is now said two or three.

Captain Ned is heading home tonight.
Back to Trinity Bay.
The wind is blowing steady.
A full moon lights his way.

Eroica, Eroica.

Summertime is cold and raw, north of Kennington Cove.
He leans into a darkening sky, toward the home and kin he loves.
The sun does shine his last day out as he stops to trade his goods. Hold one keg back, unload the rest. A toast to the northern woods.

Captain Ned is heading home tonight.
Back to Trinity Bay.
The wind is blowing steady.
A full moon lights his way.
