about

A gently rocking boat on a sunny day for Captain Harris.

lyrics

CAPTAIN HARRIS
by Britt K. Arnesen adapted from traditional "Gentle Annie"

Harvest time's come, Captain Harris
Big red buoys mark the pots we filled with bait
You'll be anxious to know, Captain Harris
How Cornelia Marie is going to fare

We'll say farewell, Captain Harris
On the Bering Sea you warmed our winter days
Yes we'll bid you adieu, Captain Harris
Till we meet you on heaven's fishing day

The quotas we must reach, Captain Harris
Red king crabs, opies, tanners make our day
Cornelia Marie's sweet on the cameras
But we'll lose her to the dry dock if she don't pay

We'll say farewell, Captain Harris
On the Bering Sea you warmed our winter days
Yes we'll bid you adieu, Captain Harris
Till we meet you on heaven's fishing day

Rascal wink, enormous heart, Captain Harris
You traded honest work for an honest wage
We won't sidestep the job, we won't cut corners
'Cause your memory keeps us chugging through the waves

We'll say farewell, Captain Harris
On the Bering Sea you warmed our winter days
Yes we'll bid you adieu, Captain Harris
Till we meet you on another fishing day
Till we meet you
Till we meet you on heaven's fishing day
