about

I’ve lived my whole life near Lake Ontario, and as a kid I spent every summer cottaging on Lake Simcoe. As a result, I’m fascinated with water and boats. It was easy getting into the mind of this character who spends
his days watching ships and imagining the far-off places from which they come and go.
I’m not much of a blues player. I’ve got my few licks I can play in any key and that’s about it. But I fell in love with blues and soul (starting with Ray Charles’ self-titled 1957 debut) in my teens and I’ve always had a part
of me that deeply connects with blues and soul. I wrote this song a long time ago and I’m really happy to have finally recorded it. Listening to Denis’ organ and Mike’s background vocals really make me smile. I even
like my guitar solo - I tried to imagine what a young Keith Richard’s would play – and playing through a late 1960’s National tube amp helped get me “in the zone”.

lyrics

To the Sea

You can keep your freight trains
Big noisy aeroplanes
Flatbed trucks, I don’t give a damn
Cause I’ve got a dream
And it’s big, blue and green
And it fills my soul and makes me long to be free

And it carries me
Yes it carries me
Yes it carries me to the sea

Oh the fish in the ocean
Drinking in that magic potion
With every wave and every swell
Works its magic spell

But me I’ve got four dirty walls
Broken window pane
Watch the water roll in every time it rains

And it carries me
Yes it carries me
Yes it carries me to the sea

I go down to the harbour
Watch the ships rolling in
Every one a miracle - how all that steel can swim
All the way from Mexico
And places I’ll never know
Except in my dreams, in my dreams

Oh they’ll carry me, they’ll carry me,
Yes, they’ll carry me
Yes, they’ll carry me to the Sea
Oh to the sea x 4
