Brandy

Brandy

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

There's a girl in this harbor town
And she works layin' whiskey down
They say "Brandy, fetch another round"
She serves them whiskey and wine.

The sailors say,"Brandy, you're a fine girl
What a good wife you would be.
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 loves.
He came on a summer's day
Bringing gifts from far away
But he made it clear he couldn't stay
No 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."
