Lyrics - A Thousand Miles From Home
The waves rolled on the beach, as we strolled along the sands,
The sun shone on her pretty face, as she
gently took my hand.
I told her that my love was true, and swore my life to hers.
She kissed me so tenderly, and promised
she was mine.
But when I woke in the morning, my true love she was gone.
The wind it blew her tall sails,
a thousand miles from home.
Her smile it warmed the night, I stared into her eyes.
When I did propose to her, my lover laid me down.
white sheets engulfed her, such beauty there to see.
I lost my heart and soul then, for all eternity.
O’ the winds blew cold, and the nights were dark.
But my lover held me tightly, into her loving arms.
lips were warm and tender, and her hair came gently down.
But when I woke in the morning, my lover she was gone.
