about

This song is the very first song that the three women ever sang together. Sophie learned it years ago at the Royal Oak-session in Edinburgh. Back in Amsterdam, it became a Lasses-favorite, and who would have thought that Kathryn, on her first visit to the back room sessions in Mulligans, would simply open her mouth and add a perfect third harmony without batting an eyelid? It was our encore during our last fall tour and we thought it would be perfect to end this live album with.

lyrics

I don't mind the rain or the rolling see
The weary night never worries me
But the hardest time in a sailors
Is to watch the sun as it dies away
Here's one more day on the Grey Funnel Line

The widest ship that sails the sea
Is still a prison for the likes of me
But give me wings like Noah's dove
And I'll sail up harbor to the girl I love
Here's one more day on the Grey Funnel Line

Oh lord if dreams were only real
I'd put my hand on that wooden wheel
And with all my heart I'd turn her 'round
And tell the boys that we're homeward bound
Here's one more day on the Grey Funnel Line

I'll pass the time like some machine
Until blue water turns to green
And I'll dance on down that walk ashore
And sail the Grey Funnel Line not more
And sail the Grey Funnel Line no more

Margot and Sophie met at Victor Lacken's Wednesday session in Mulligans and found out their voices went very well together: Margots husky alto and Sophies emotive soprano complement each other rather nicely. Irish traditionals and folkie standards brought to the stage or the street in tender harmony! ... more
