lyrics

THE OLD MAN AND THE SEA
APPLEBY RAM
© and ℗ 2019 Music & Lyrics by Peter Stutterheim

Verse 1:
Arthritic fingers shaped like claws
Aching knees that make him pause
The old eyes, the wrinkled face
His crooked body out of place
His vision sharp despite the years
Today it isn’t death he fears
The sea the colour of his eyes
Tears are falling as he cries

Chorus:
The old man and the sea
The old man and the sea
How can he see in the future
When all he has left is the past
He’s ready to let go at last
The old man and the sea

Verse 2:
The old man walked and walked his road
A hard and heavy path he strode
The cruel sea took both his sons
But they were not the only ones
The cold grey water took his wife
And ended so her precious life
The memories are always clear
But often they will bring a tear

Mmm mmm mmm mmm
Mmm mmm mmm mmm


Verse 3:
The sea, his love, to whom he’d sing
He hates her more than anything
He slowly walks the sandy beach
His distant history out of reach
The old man’s life has passed him by
His death will come, the end is nigh
The cancer’s eating him away
But his life will be the sea’s today

Chorus:
The old man and the sea
The old man and the sea
How can he see in the future
When all he has left is the past
He’s ready to go home at last
The old man and the sea
The old man and the sea
The old man, the sea
The sea
