From the album THE BLIND SESSIONS (2009)

See there where she stands, outside as the rain starts to fall. She says don’t go, please don’t go, sailor’s gone. Don’t sail away sailor daddy, you’ll never know your son if you choose to chase this bottle green. Don’t sail away sailor daddy, your compass is undone, it just carries you farther out of reach. Say, what do you seek out there at sea? There ain’t no greener grasses on the other side. Ain’t no treasures either, they all lie right here buried before your waking eyes. But when the rum is gone, and you drift to shore?
