Single Handed Sailor Lyrics

Single-Handed Sailor - Dire Straits (恐惧海峡)

Two in the morning dry-dock town

 

The river rolls in the night

 

Little gypsy moth she's all tied down

 

She quiver in the wind and the light

 

Yeah and a sailing ship is just held down in chains

 

From the lazy days of sail

 

She's just a lying there in silent pain

 

He lean on the tourist rail

 

A mother and her baby and the college of war

 

In the concrete graves

 

You never wanna fight against the river law

 

Nobody rules the waves

 

Yeah and on a night when the lazy wind is a-wailing

 

Around the Cutty Sark

 

The single handed sailor goes sailing

 

Sailing away in the dark

 

He's upon the bridge on the self same night

 

The mariner of dry dock land

 

Two in the morning but there's one green light

 

And a man on a barge of sand

 

She's gonna slip away below him

 

Away from the things he's done

 

But he just shouts "Hey man what you call this thing"

 

Could said "Pride of London"

 

On a night when the lazy wind is a-wailing

 

Around the Cutty Sark

 

Yeah the single handed sailor goes sailing

 

Sailing away in the dark
