Allman Brothers Band – Ocean Awash The Gunwale Lyrics

Our lives are hanging in the balance

Or they’re dangling by a thread

A spark of life brought down from an angel

To raise the stranger from the dead

Once more we’re cheating on the reaper

With all the gypsy in our souls

Cause I know there’s a God up in heaven

Who must love rock and roll

Once again we sail home to Sarasota

As the ocean awash the gunwale

But she still keeps her head above water

Guess we’re all gonna live to tell this tale

And here’s to the you for always hangin’ in

Without you there’s no reason to go

I’d be lying face down in some river

Waiting on an angel to take me back home

Once again we sail home to Sarasota

with the ocean awash the gunwale

But she still keeps her head above water

Guess we’re all gonna live to tell this tale

Solo:

Once again we sail home to Sarasota

with the ocean awash the gunwale

But she still keeps her head above water

Guess we’re all gonna live to tell this tale
