Play the song (MP3)

I recorded this with Colin Ward for our Have You a Taste CD; this is an earlier version with Roger McGuinn on harmonies and electric guitars. He's pretty good, too.

Sailed So Well

A breeze filled every sail we raised
at the first light of the day
We traced a silver pinfish flight
the length of Tampa Bay

We put Anna Maria Island astern
and mounted the open sea
No pelican soared, nor marlin ranged
that ever felt more free

And we sailed so well
anyone would say
We sailed so well
yesterday

Fueled by the fire of a western wind
we sang the sun goodnight
then hushed as every star there is
turned darkness diamond-white

And we sailed so well
anyone would say
We sailed so well
yesterday

Was it the time we put in Venice Inlet
or was it Boca Grande?
The sun was setting in golden wine
and you reached to touch my hand
The gown slipped off your shoulder
The gown slipped off your shoulder...

A breeze filled every sail we raised
at the first light of the day
We traced a silver pinfish flight
the length of Tampa Bay

And we sailed so well
yesterday
We'll sail so well
again someday
