Lyrics

a song about freedom
and the trading of same for something else

painted boat

my painted boat
painted boat full of dreams
sailed these misty islands
crossed these sunlit seas
sometimes i know my port of call
sometimes it’s anywhere at all
we’re always searching the sea
painted boat and me

and we go
ride the wind for free
and we go, yeah we go
painted boat and me

my painted boat
painted boat full of dreams
our road’s the water
our map the seven seas
we can wait out any storm
stay in harbour safe and warm
there’s no place we need to be
painted boat and me

and we go
ride the wind for free
and we go, yeah we go
painted boat and me
and we go
ride the wind wild and free
and we go, yeah we go, yeah we go, yeah we go
painted boat and me

my painted boat
painted boat full of dreams
came to the city
shining city by the sea
for a while i lost my way
till i found myself one day
down on the wharf by the sea
painted boat and me

and we go
ride the wind for free
and we go, yeah we go
painted boat and me

my painted boat
painted boat full of dreams
came to an island
so deep in the sea
paradise or port of call
warm hello or final landfall
this time we put out to sea
painted boat and me

and we go, yeah we go
ride the wind for free
and we go, yeah we go
painted boat and me
and we go
ride the wind wild and free
and we go, yeah we go, yeah we go, yeah we go
painted boat and me

my painted boat
painted boat full of dreams
came to harbour
came in from the sea
heard the siren after all
could it be last port of call
and we never put out to sea
painted boat and me

will we never go
ride the wind for free
will we never go, never go
painted boat and me

painted lady
painted lady full of dreams
made me tarry
made me forget the sea, ah but
one day i’ll hear the foghorn blow
have to get up and go
take the lady to sea
painted boat and me

and we’ll go, yeah we’ll go
ride the wind for free
and we’ll go, yeah we'll go
painted boat and me
and we’ll go
ride the wind wild and free
and we’ll go, yeah we’ll go, yeah we’ll go
painted boat and me

and we’ll go
wait for the sun to burn the mist
and we’ll go
wait for a fair wind from the west
and we’ll go
now we’ll just wait on the tide
and we’ll go
hoist the sail and we’ll ride

and we’ll go, yeah we’ll go
ride the wind wild and free
and we’ll go, yeah we’ll go
painted boat and me
and we’ll go, yeah we’ll go
ride the wind wild and free
and we’ll go, yeah we’ll go, yeah we’ll go, yeah we’ll go
painted boat and me

and we’ll go
and we’ll go
and we’ll go
and we’ll go
painted boat and me
