lyrics

Somebody tell the state,
My love has gone away.
I left him by the bay
what will I do without my old first mate?
Now that he's gone away.

Ship goes down hard just like hundreds have before,
I couldn't see when he shut the chamber door.
I'll hold my breath in the morning I wake,
I'll see my love when he holds all pieces,
he holds the pieces of eight.

I'm not a victim of a lovers lost heartbreak,
Weep like a witch while she's burning at the stake.
He took my love in the cold light of day,
That boy took my love away and the

Ship goes down hard just like hundreds have before,
I couldn't see when he shut the chamber door.
I'll hold my breath in the morning I wake,
I'll see my love when he holds all pieces,
he holds the pieces of eight.

Hey! (repeats)

Ship goes down hard just like hundreds have before,
I couldn't see when he shut the chamber door.
I'll hold my breath in the morning I wake,
I'll see my love when he holds all pieces,
he holds the pieces of eight.
