Lyrics

St. Gabriel

Written By: Katie Dixon

St. Gabriel, St. Gabriel,
the sea it is so wide.
My old boat, it is so small
and I fear the rising tide.

They've gone and changed this world on me. I cannot find my home.
St. Gabriel be good to me, I've nowhere left to go.

The brought us from the northern lands, they brought us bound and tied.
We worked our way through southern fields to reach the waterside.

My mother watched the ships set sail, my daddy rode them high.
The day they brought his body back,
she bowed her head and cried.

They've gone and changed this world on me. I cannot find my home.
St. Gabriel be good to me, I've nowhere left to go.

They've brought me here to spend my days. They say I'm marked by death.
But I'll not mourn my troubled fate
and mar what I have left.

The waters rose and filled the streets, they drank the towns and trees.
They swallowed up the life I knew
and gave it to the sea.

They've gone and changed this world on me. I cannot find my home.
St. Gabriel be good to me, I've nowhere left to go.

St. Gabriel, St. Gabriel,
the sea it is so wide.
My old boat, it is so small
and I fear the rising tide.
