Subject: Lyr Req: 7 Days
From: GUEST,Bradfordian

Looking for the lyrics and information for a seemingly British composed maritime/fishing song which be May entitled “7 Days”
The first line is:
It’s the north Devon winters that drive us all to sea, the cold banks, searching for the shoals.....

And there is a refrain:
Where are you, love? Are you out there in the night? Think of me, the waiting fire still burns.
Where are you love? It’s the early morning light that wakes me. When will you return?

Yes, that the one, thank you.

SEVERN DAYS by Show of Hands
Seven Days lyrics
It's the North Devon winters that drive us all to sea
To the cold banks searching for the shoals
I am a week away from harbour and the nets are drifting free
Still empty and there's nothing in our hold
So we turn to the north for the last time
It's one more haul and then we'll head for home
Four hours up on deck then four hours down below
Thinking of you waking all alone

Seven days and seven hours have passed
Since we said goodbye
Beside the old sea wall
And every sunrise, every sunset
I dream of you
Over the orange ocean
And I pray
And as I wait I remember
Your gentle touch and your face
And I miss you
And I love you

Where are you love are you out there in the night?
Think of me the waiting fire still burns
Where are you love it's the early morning light
That wakes me oh when will you return?

I am deep in the heart of a storm rolling sea
A hundred miles from safety on the shore
But lost in your arms that's where I should be
Rescue me and I'll sail no more

Where are you love are you out there in the night?
Think of me the wiating fire still burns
Where are you love it's the early morning light
That takes me
On a rising tide
And breaks me
By the waterside
Then wakes me
As the waves collide
When will you return

The song is on the 2003 Show of Hands album titled Country Life. With a song title as common as this, I can't find the name of the songwriter.
Anybody know who wrote the song?

Based on the above and the recording, here's my attempt to polish up the transcription. There's several parts that are debatable.

SEVEN DAYS
(Jenna Witts, Steve Knightley)


It's the North Devon winters that drive us all to sea
To the cold banks searching for the shoal
I am a week away from harbour and the nets are drifting free
Still empty and there's nothing in our hold
So we turn to the north for the last time
It's one more haul and then we'll head for home
Four hours up on deck then four hours down below
Thinking of you, waking all alone

Seven days and seven hours have passed
Since we said goodbye
Beside the old sea wall
And every sunrise, every sunset
I dream of you
Over the orange ocean
And I pray
And as I wait I remember
Your gentle touch and your face
And I miss you
And I love you

Where are you, love, are you out there in the night?
Think of me, the waiting fire still burns
Where are you, love, it's the early morning light
That wakes me, oh when will you return?

I am deep in the heart of a storm rolling sea
A hundred miles from safety on the shore
But lost in your arms, that's where I should be
Rescue me, and I'll sail no more

Where are you love, are you out there in the night?
Think of me, the waiting fire still burns
Where are you love, it's the early morning light
That takes me
On a rising tide
And breaks me
By the waterside
Then wakes me
As the waves collide
When will you return?

As far as I can tell Joe, the only difference with the linked recording is in your line 6 - there's no and after haul.

Mick
