  • By: jimmy buffett
  • 1975
  • I never used to miss the chance
  • To climb upon his knee
  • Listen to the many tales
  • Of life upon the sea
  • We'd go sailin' back on barkentines
  • An' talk of things he did
  • Tomorrow just a day away
  • For the captain and the kid
  • His world had gone from sailin' ships
  • To rakin' mom's backyard
  • He never could adjust to land
  • Although he tried so hard
  • We both were growin' older then
  • Wiser with our years
  • That's when i came to understand
  • The course his heart still steered
  • He died about a month ago
  • While winter filled the air
  • And though i cried i was so proud
  • To love a man so rare
  • He's somewhere on the ocean now
  • A place he outta be
  • With one hand on the starboard rail
  • He's wavin' back at me
  • I never used to miss the chance
  • To climb upon his knee
  • Listen to his many tales
  • Of life upon the sea
  • We'd go sailin' back on barkentines
  • Talk of things he did
  • The world was just a day away
  • For the captain and the kid
  • For the captain
  • And this kid
