On The High Seas Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Was it someone she met that's so hard to forget
Was it some kind of an ocean of changes
I don't remember where she said she would be
And since I don't know, let me guess
Was it somewhere in michigan or the lake of the woods
Up in old montreal or toronto the good
Somewhere in reno or somewhere in rome
And when all is said and done
Will she leave me alone

I don't want to get so low
And as for my sadness, it comes and it goes
I don't remember where she said she would be
Back in the city or on the high seas

Was it up in hornpayne where the trains run on time
Was she drinking champagne when she made up her mind
North of the border or down in south bend
And when all is said and done
Is there no rainbow's end

I don't want to own the key
To some ghostly mansion where souls are set free
I don't remember where she said she would go
Straight for the highway or down the low road
I don't remember where she said she would be
Back in the city or on the high seas
