lyrics

Sail Away (a retread of Randy Newman's classic)
dedicated to the 2011 Occupy movement
10/19/11 - FtLd


In America we are raised on dreams
Work hard, play fair and you will see
Then why did all those companies
Do what they did to you and me

Sail away, sail away
We will cross the mighty ocean
To the Charleston Bay
Sail away, sail away
We will cross the mighty ocean
To the Charleston Bay

Go to school then university
Work 9 to 5, 5 days a week
Until one day you come to see
A pink slip change your reality

Sail away, sail away
We will cross the mighty ocean
To the Charleston Bay
Sail away, sail away
We will cross the mighty ocean
To the Charleston Bay

In America everyone is free
To fall down into poverty
You can work hard all day for a little pay
And never have any security

Sail away, sail away
We will cross the mighty ocean
To the Charleston Bay
Sail away, sail away
We will cross the mighty ocean
To the Charleston Bay

So, in America we still have a dream
That one day we’ll get back all the things
That matter the most of all to us
Like justice and equality

Sail away, sail away
We will cross the mighty ocean
To the Charleston Bay
Sail away, sail away
We will cross the mighty ocean
To the Charleston Bay

Personal Note: PS - I wrote Sail Away, a retread of the Randy Newman classic, for Occupy Fort LauderdaLe in 2011. I recorded a live album - Towne Crier - for Occupy Fort Lauderdale on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, 2011, on the Fort Lauderdale City Hall Plaza in front of the Fort Lauderdale City Hall. Sail Away is on that album, and a free download of the album or its individual tracks are available at:
