Lyrics

The old man waits for sunrise
Remembers days through younger eyes
Mornings sailing ocean tides
Rolling him on home

All the girls in all the towns
All the destinations bound
All the love he ever found
Rolling him on home

And the restless sea was where he lived
And where he chose to roam
And all his lonely sailing dreams
Aren't rolling him on home

He had a child in fifty-five
He never saw her lovely eyes
But in his thoughts she's by his side
Rolling him on home

His life is like a sunset
An ever-moving target
He never thought that he'd regret
Rolling him on home

And the restless sea was where he lived
And where he chose to roam
And all his lonely sailing dreams
Aren't rolling him on home

The nurse comes in at nine-o-three
To wash his wasting body
He fears that time will never be
Rolling him on home
