Lyrics

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

another shore

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
