Message: Oh me name's Able Rodgers, a share man am I On a three masted schooner from Twillingate Isle I've been the world over north, south, east, and west But the middle of nowhere wheres' I likes it best [Chorus:] Where its wave over wave, sea over bow I'm as happy a man as the sea will allow Theres no other life for a sailor like me And to sail the salt sea boys, sail the sea There's no other life but to sail the salt sea Well I leave my wife lonely ten months of the year For she built me a home and raised my children there She never come out to bid farewell to me Or ken why a sailor must sail the salt sea [Chorus] The work it is hard and the hours are long But my spirit is willing, my back it is strong And when the works over the whisky will pour We'll dance with the girls upon some foreign shore I've sailed the world over for decades or more And oft times I wonder what I do it for I dont know the answer its pleasure and pain But with life to live over I'd do it again
