• The Day I Went Sailing (original song)

    404 views 1 year ago
    I was inspired to write this song from an essay my daughter wrote for her 7th grade English class about the first time I took her and her brother sailing. Plus, I always wanted to write a sailing song!


    The Day that I Went Sailing, on Chesapeake bay.
    I can say without a doubt, what a glorious day
    The seas were calm, the wind was out
    A great day without a doubt
    The day that I went sailing, on Chesapeake bay.

    Last summer I went sailing in Annapolis way
    Perfect weather for sailing On that warm August day
    I went sailing with my father and brother on the bay
    It was a great experience I can surely say

    We pulled into the harbor after a long drive
    we couldn't wait to get on the boat after we arrive
    The boat was a great schooner with large, flowing sails.
    With every thing in place right down to the last nails

    In the clear water I could easily see the crab traps.
    That day I was able to sail the ship, without any maps
    I was also able to hoist the sail!
    I was even able to trim the tell-tale!
    I will never forget this trip, and will do it again without fail.

    (Repeat first verse)
