Texas Girl at the Funeral of Her Father

This song is by Nic Jones and appears on the live compilation album In Search Of Nic Jones (1998).

Here I stand lost in the wind,
Round in circles sailing
Like a ship that never comes in,
Standing by myself.

Sing a sad song for a good man,
Sing a sad song for me;
Sing a sad song for a sailor
A thousand miles from sea.

Here I stand alone on the plain.
Sun's going down,
It's starting to rain.
Daddy, we'll go sailing
