Doc Hodges: Music

Captain of a Shipwreck

(Doc Hodges)
May 10, 2011
Neil Diamond

I was lost, until you found me

You're the reason for my today

Was tempest tossed, now I sleep soundly

Thanks to you, I'll gladly say

 

That if your gold mine comes up empty

I'll be there to work the claim

If you're captain of a shipwreck

I'll be firstmate to your shame

 

Trust in me, to share your burden

Stand by you, where I belong

When life brings the day uncertain

I will soothe you with my song

 

And if your gold mine comes up empty

I'll be there to work the claim

If you're captain of a shipwreck

I'll be firstmate to your shame

 

Fear no flood in stormy weather

Fear no fire if winds arise

Flesh and blood, I'm yours forever

And forever, it never dies

 

And if your gold mine comes up empty

I'll be there to work the claim

If you're captain of a shipwreck

I'll be firstmate to your shame
