Lyrics Fisherman's Blues

Ooh, ooh
I wish I was a fisherman tumblin' on the seas
Far away from dry land and it's bitter memories
Castin' out my sweet line with abandonment and love
No ceilin' bearin' down on me save the starry sky above
With light in my head you in my arms, ooh
I wish I was the brakeman on a hurtlin' fevered train
Crashin' headlong into the heartland like a candle in the rain
With the beatin' of the sweepers and the burnin' of the coal
Countin' the towns flashin' by in a night that's full of soul
With light in my head you in my arms, ooh
Tomorrow I will be loosened from bonds that hold me fast
That the chains all hung around me will fall away at last
And on that fine and fateful day
I will take thee in my hands
I will ride on the train
I will be the fisherman
With light in my head you in my arms, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, light in my head you in my arms
Light in my head you
Light in my head you in my arms
Light in my head yeah, babe, ooh, ooh, ooh
