My cover of the song by Maritime folk artist, Jim Payne. This song first popped up on my radar after being covered by the East coast Canadian band, Great Big Sea. This song is one of my favourites for camfire sing alongs, particularly if you can get a lot of voices behind it for the chorus.

"WAVE OVER WAVE" - Written by Jim Payne


Oh me name's Able Rodgers, a share man am I

On a three masted schooner from Twillingate Isle

I've been the world over North, South, East, and West

But the middle of nowhere wheres' I likes it best


[Chorus:]

Where its wave over wave, sea over bow

I'm as happy a man as the sea will allow

Theres no other life for a sailor like me

But to sail the salt sea boys, sail the sea

There's no other life but to sail the salt sea


The work it is hard and the hours are long

But my spirit is willing, my back it is strong

And when the works over the whisky will pour

We'll dance with the girls upon some foreign shore


[Chorus]


Well I leave my wife lonely ten months of the year

But she built me a home and raised my children there

But she'd never come out to bid farewell to me

Or ken why a sailor must sail the salt sea


[Chorus]


I've sailed the world over four decades or more

And oft times I wonder why I do it for

I dont know the answer its pleasure and pain

But with life to live over I'd do it again


[Chorus]
