We're sailing on a strange boat
Heading for a strange shore
We're sailing on a strange boat
Heading for a strange shore
Carrying the strangest cargo
That was ever hauled aboard

We're sailing on a strange sea
Blown by a strange wind
We're sailing on a strange sea
Blown by a strange wind
Carrying the strangest crew
That ever sinned

We're riding in a strange car
We're followin' a strange star
We're climbing on the strangest ladder
That was ever there to climb

We're living in a strange time
Working for a strange goal
We're living in a strange time
Working for a strange goal
We're turning flesh and body
Into soul

Saw them live many years ago in a small venue in Toronto,they were fantastic...gorgeous fiddle player, always loved their unique sound. Fishermans blues was the hit that made me a fan but they have quite a breadth of great material to play for 2 hours.

 

Agreed. I caught them live in a marquee on Highbury Fields in London in the early 90s. Rained like no tomorrow and we were sloshing around in mud but just vibing to the unique sound of Mike Scott and his Waterboys. Nice memory.
Go offshore, come back, and then we'll talk.  :)

Yah, I keep hearing that -over & over & over...
Probably my favorite album of all time. Timeless sound...great musicians, great arangements, and of course Mike Scott.
I would like to hear what the Boss and the Big Man would do with this song.  I think it's perfectly suited to their style.

A great song from a classic album. The Waterboys were one of the best bands ever. The real deal.
One of the all time great albums ever!

Anybody know if Paradise, CA, has an ocean view? Bill's getting a bit wistful.
