Lyrics


There’s a port on a western bay
And it serves a hundred ships a day
Lonely sailors pass the time a way
And talk about their homes

And there’s a girl in this harbor town
And she works laying whiskey down
They say Brandy, fetch another round
She serves them whisky and wine

The sailors say Brandy, you’re a fine girl
What a good wife you would be
Yeah, your eyes could steal a sailor from the sea

Brandy wears a braided chain
Made of finest silver from the north of Spain
A locket that bears the name of the man that Brandy loved
He came on a summer’s day bringing gifts from far away

But he made it clear he couldn’t stay
The harbor was his home
The sailor said Brandy, you’re a fine girl
What a good wife you would be
But my life, my love, and my lady is the sea

Yeah, Brandy used to watch his eyes when he told his sailor stories
She could feel the ocean fall and rise
She saw its raging glory

But he had always told the truth, Lord he was an honest man
And Brandy does her best to understand

At night, when the bars close down
Brandy walks through a silent town
And loves a man who’s not around
She still can hear him say

She hears him say Brandy, you’re a fine girl
What a good wife you would be
But my life, my love, and my lady is the sea

Brandy, you’re a fine girl
What a good wife you would be
But my life, my love, and my lady is the sea

Imbibe the beats!
