Name that wet tune!

Since Fridays tend to be major news dumps these days, how about a light-hearted game?

Write a few lines from a song that refers to water, let everybody else guess what song its from, and the artist. Me first!

"I have my ship and all her flags are a' flyin'
She is all that I have left and music is her name".

We fired the guns, and burned the mast
And rowed from ship to shore
The captain cried, we sailors wept
Our tears were tears of joy!

3. Sorry, not quite light-hearted, but this English ballad was the first to pop in my head:

Bad news, bad news, you English heroes
Bad news I have for to tell
There's one of your ships lies sunk off the land
And all of your merry men drowned.

I'm tired and going to bed, but will try to come back tomorrow and play nice

I am perplexed on these others.

How about:

Here's the hitch
Your horse is leaving
Don't miss your boat
It's leaving now.

And an easy one:

Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by, water flowing underground

I got a cravin' love for blazing speed
Got a hopped up Mustang Ford
Jump into the wagon, love
Throw your panties overboard
I can write you poems
Make a strong man lose his mind
I'm no pig without a wig
I hope you treat me kind

I just could hear the song when I read that. I'm a child of the 60's and 70's.

36. That's cool!

I love the album "Green River"..which I think was their third album, but I never much liked the title song.

CCR's fourth album. "Willie and the Poor Boys" was outstanding, imo.
[It's my favorite CCR album]

There's a ship lies rigged and ready in the harbor
Tomorrow for old England she sails
Far away from your land of endless sunshine
To my land full of rainy skies and gales
And I shall be aboard that ship tomorrow
Though my heart is full of tears at this farewell
