Winds and Tides Permitting words & music Enda McCabe COPYRIGHT CONTROL PRS MCPS
This little boat protects me well
And carries me oer the oceanís swell In another day Iíll be close to you The winds and the tides permitting
Ah the winds and the tides permitting The winds and the tides permitting Iíll be with you when I can
The winds and the tides permitting
I have traveled the whole world through
Put many miles between me and you
Now Iím homeward bound on the deep blue sea I still remember our sweet young dreams
Ah the winds and the tides permitting The winds and the tides permitting Iíll be with you when I can
The winds and the tides permitting
For the days and weeks have turned into months And the months turned into years
ëThough many miles between us lay Iíd think of you most every day
Ah the winds and the tides permitting The winds and the tides permitting Iíll be with you when I can
The winds and the tides permitting
