GUEST,Tim Lyr Req: The Open Sea (Bert Jansch/Pentangle) (9) Lyr Add: THE OPEN SEA (Bert Jansch/Pentangle) 29 Jan 11


Just like a toy boat, that's floating down the river
Gently bobbing up and down
The autumn leaves brightly settled on the water
In rainbow eddies spinning 'round

A wild and lonely seed that's borne upon the wind
You never worry while you're bound
You ride the rapids like a feather on the air
With no complaints and not a sound.

CHORUS: But here, please take care
As you travel on your journey.
Take care, but beware
Of the open sea.

In perfect innocence your world seems like a flower
Never fading; always bright
You never look ahead, don't see the waterfall
You never seen the warning lights.

CHORUS: But take care ah please take care
As you travel on your journey.
Take care, but beware
Of the open sea.

Instrumental break

Like Peter Pan, he'll never think about tomorrow.
Tomorrow is another day
No time to stop and think, no time to think of sorrow
You turn your back to fly away

CHORUS: Take care; please take care!
As you travel on your journey.
Take care, ah beware
Of the open sea.

Take care; please take care!
As you travel on your way.
Take care, and be beware
Of the open sea.

Instrumental end
