Story

 

 

The captain of his own fishing boat is taking some of the

Acadians away with him to the south in the 1750s after the

English had driven them out of what is now Nova Scotia 

Some did make it to Louisiana and settled there

We eat their Cajun blackened fish and dance to Zydeco music

 

 

Lyrics

 

god gave us the water

and a way to race the wind

god gave us the fishes

and a way to take them in

but a man needs a harbour

a place for coming home

when the weather gets wicked

and the sea's no place to roam

 

we are sailing for another shore

we are sailing won't come no more

we are sailing for another shore

 

my father before me

his father and the brothers too

fished these waters forever

since the world was new

we called this our country

our home and native land

but all of that's finished

we're all in god's hands

 

we are sailing for another shore

we are sailing won't come no more

we are sailing for another shore

we are sailing for another shore

we are sailing won't come no more

we are sailing for another shore

 

somewhere there's a place

we can make a stand

we keep headed south

some day make louisiane

cast off at daybreak

set a course for who knows where

if you don't see me look back

it ain't cause i don't care

 

we are sailing for another shore

we are sailing won't come no more

we are sailing for another shore

we are sailing for another shore

we are sailing won't come no more

we are sailing for another shore

we are sailing for another shore

we are sailing won't come no more

we are sailing for another shore

we are sailing won't come no more

we are sailing

we are sailing

we are sailing

we are sailing
