​The Unforgiving Sea

This song is by Gandalf's Fist and appears on the album Songs from the Solway (2011).

It whipped up the sea into a boiling broth
Flinging boys and sailors to and forth
It were like a storm from the gates of hell
From the crow's nest there came a mighty yell
The captain fought against the wheel
Trimming sail and ballast but to no avail
The water sprayed into the sky
All aboard knew they would surely die

The unforgiving sea, it will take more lives today
Ride the waves unto the wind
Well we all just hope and pray
Sail away, ride the waves...

The bosun called 'man overboard'
As the crippled ship heads for the shore
The rocks rise up as the ship smacks down
The captain knows that all must drown
One man lies upon the beach
Up on the shingle, out of water's reach
The bosun of the ship has survived
While the crew and the captain gave their lives

The unforgiving sea, it will take more lives today
Ride the waves unto the wind
Well we all just hope and pray
Sail away, ride the waves...
