The Captain And Me (LP Version)

The Captain And Me (LP Version)

The Doobie Brothers

Deep as a river, wide as the sea
Changin' the ways of a captain and me
I could be happy, Lord, so then should he
If all of the Universe, unveiled itself to me

So then a day flows into night
Down the street the beggar man who finds himself in wine
If I am a good man and sure in all my ways
The captain of a starship that's homeward bound today

Growin', growin', changin' every day
Knowin', showin' all my worldly ways
Hear the chimes, hear how they ring
Markin' time all through the day

A whisper, an answer, a cry in the night
Break down, turn around, a feelin' of fright
The Indian, the black man, the Asian who see
A door that is opening, and they're goin' to be free

Growin', growin', changin' every day
Knowin', showin' all my worldly ways
Hear the chimes, hear how they ring
Markin' time all through the day

We are all acceptable, we are all a place in time
Movin' through a passageway, bringin' forth the end of time

Growin', growin', changin' every day
Knowin', showin' all my worldly ways
Hear the chimes, hear how they ring
Markin' time all through the day

Light the fire, start the day, mark the light that shows the way
Changin' times of fortunes past, we will all be free at last

We are the people of the round about
We are the sails upon the sea
We're gonna be there when everybody laughs about
The way that we are changin', you and me, yeah

We are the people of the round about
We are the sails upon the sea
We're gonna be there when everybody laughs about
The way that we are changin', you and me

We are the people of the round about
We are the sails upon the sea
