Lyrics

Elegy No. 5

Written By: Jeremy Voros

Daddy had a fishing boat, for he was a sailor
Silver salmon flashed their fins and he knew how to chase them
Swim, salmon, swim
Daddy's right behind
Dive, sturgeon, dive
Daddy's boat is floating by

Place your little hand in his and felt safe and warm
Wrapped around your tiny paw a shelter from the storm
Smile, baby, smile
Daddy's there to take you home
Smile, baby smile
Never leave you all alone

Doctor said he'd be alright, but I, I knew better
Saw the devil by his side and angel on his shoulder
Cry, honey, cry
Daddy's not coming home
Cry, honey, cry
Feeling like you're all alone

His fishing boat just sits on blocks, outside mama's trailer
But now and ever in my mind it floats on out to sea
Hey, Captain, hey
What kind of boat you sailing now?
Hey, Captain, hey
What silver fish you chasing now?

Hey, Captain, hey
What kind of boat you sailing now?
Hey, Captain, hey
What silver fish you chasing now?

Faith, honey, faith
You'll float again with him someday
Faith, honey, faith
You'll float again with him someday

Hey, daddy, hey
To float with you was heaven
Yeah I'll float with you to heaven
Want to float with you
to heaven
