    A SAILORS PRAYER

    I’ve been sitting here thinking
    Of things I’ve left behind
    And I’d hate to put on paper
    What's running through my mind
    we’ve climbed a million ladders
    We’ve chipped ten miles of paint
    And a worser place this side of hell
    Well, there just simply aint.
    we’ve scrubbed a million anchor irons
    we’ve peeled a million spuds
    we’ve lashed a million hammocks
    And washed our dirty duds
    We’ve stood for endless hours
    While waiting for our mail
    We’ve stood a million watches
    Been on every damn detail
    But when those final taps are sounded
    And we’ve laid aside life's cares
    that’s when we’ll take our final leaves
    Right up those golden stairs
    The angels all will welcome us
    Their harps will start to play
    We’ll sign a million pay slips
    And spend them in one day
    And that’s when we’ll hear St. Peter
    Greet us loudly with a yell
    “take a seat up front sailor
    ‘cause you’ve served your hitch in hell”

    God bless, fair winds and following seas
    your friend and mine
    be safe
    okie
    I like.
