Jackie

Jackie left on a cold, dark night
Telling me he’d be home
Sailed the seas for a hundred years
Left me all alone
Now, I’ve been dead for twenty years
I’ve been washing the sand
With my ghostly tears
Searching the shores for my Jackie-oh

And I remember the day that
The young man came
Said your Jackie’s gone he’s lost in the rain
And I ran to the beach
Laid me down
“You’re all wrong”, I said as they stared
To the sand, “That man knows that sea
Like the back of his hand, he’ll be back
Some time, laughing at you”

I’ve been waiting all this time
For my man to come
Take his hand in mine
And lead me away to unseen shores
I’ve been washing the sand
With my salty tears
Searching the shores these long years
And I walked the sea forever more
Till I find my Jackie-oh

Jackie-oh
Jackie-oh
Jackie-oh

Car Radio

I ponder of something great
My lungs will fill and then deflate
They fill with fire, exhale desire
I know it’s dire, my time today
I have these thoughts so often, I ought
To replace that slot with what I once bought
‘Cause somebody stole my car radio
And now I just sit in silence

Searching the shores these long years
And I walked the sea forever more
Till I find my Jackie-oh
