I wrote The Sailor's Song the summer of 1976. After a few word changes, I have just dusted it off and re-recorded it to share with all my fans. (All 3 of them) Copyright by BearRon,1976 2011. (Member BMI)
This was a bit out of my norm for the date. I was into love songs, when I had a fight with my girlfriend. I must have been a bit depressed, and do remember listening to Olivia Newton John sing Eric Carmen's Boats Against the Current" over and over. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VfL1_a... Somehow this song came out of my misery. Today I think it is one of my best songs. I bit odd, but the story is so timely. We all have bad times, old age - unemployment, -- breaak-ups, poor health -- but life goes on. You may feel like death wormed over, but don't kill yourself, write a song. Hope this helps. Years from now you will look back on you life and bearly remember the reasons you were so sad, but a great song can last forever.
