"Wooden Ships"
(David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Paul Kantner)

[Intro. (Electric Guitar)]

Stills: If you smile at me I will understand
'Cause that is something
Everybody everywhere does in the same language
Crosby: I can see by your coat, my friend you're from the other side
There's just one thing I got to know
Can you tell me please who won?
Stills: Say can I have some of your purple berries?
Crosby: Yes, I've been eating them
For six or seven weeks now haven't got sick once
Stills: Probably keep us both alive

Wooden ships on the water very free and easy
Easy, you know the way it's supposed to be
Silver people on the shoreline let us be
Talkin' 'bout very free and easy

[Instrumental (Electric Guitar)]

Horror grips us as we watch you die
All we can do is echo your anguished cries
Stare as all human feelings die
We are leaving, you don't need us

[Instrumental (Electric Guitar)]

Aaaah ...
Go take your sister then by the hand
Lead her away from this foreign land
Far away where we might laugh again
We are leaving, you don't need us

[Instrumental (Electric Guitar)]

And it's a fair wind
Blowin' warm out of the south over my shoulder
Guess I'll set a course and go

[Ending (Electric Guitar and Organ)]
