Ghost in The Fog

 

I’ve seen it all a rise and fall now???

Fishin’ stocks are gone

It’s a different way of life but we’ll go on

We’ve faced the icy winds and cold out on the northern sea

Where the cod stocks made a livin’ once for me

 

And I remember years ago when men they made their daily catch

The cod tongues from the heads of fish we’d snatch

For a buck a pound we’d all go down close by the waters edge

And we’d wait for skulls to fall down from the ledge

 

But if I stare out long enough over the mist upon the bay

I can still see men in the morning sail away

I believe I see a vision in my dream from on this log

Rise from the seas like ghosts out in the fog

 

But time moves on our lives they’ve changed

Some friends we’ll see no more

As we boarded up the windows and the doors

And we stare once more at an empty shore

Where caplin use to race

And we leave for good the tears roll down our face

 

But if I stare out long enough over the mist upon the bay

I can still see men in the morning sail away

And I believe I see a vision in my dream from on this log

Rise from the seas like ghosts out in the fog

 

But the years they drift behind us

And the dreams we’d had are gone

And we realize it’s time now to move on

Like an ember from the chimney of a wood stove time it flies

And it fades away like stars up in the sky

 

And if I stare out long enough over the mist upon the bay

I can still see men in the morning sail away

And I believe I see a vision in my dream from on this log

Rise from the seas like ghosts out in the fog

 

But if I stare out long enough over the mist upon the bay

I can still see men in the morning sail away

And I believe I see a vision in my dream from on this log

Rise from the seas like ghosts out in the fog

 

They rise from the seas like ghosts out in the
