BRANDY




By Looking Glass




There's a port on a western bay
And it serves a hundred ships a day
Lonely sailors pass the time a way
And talk about their homes
And there's a girl in this harbor town
And she works layin' whiskey down
They say "Brandy, fetch another round"
She serves them whiskey and wine

The sailors say "Brandy, you're a fine girl
What a good wife you would be
Your eyes could steal a sailor from the sea"

Brandy wears a braided chain
made of finest silver from the north of Spain
A locket that bears the name
Of the man that Brandy loves
He came on a summer's day
Bringin' gifts from far away
But, he made it clear he couldn't stay
No harbor was his home

The Sailor said, "Brandy, you're a fine girl
What a good wife you would be
But my life, my love and my lady is the sea"

Yeah, Brandy used to watch his eyes
When he told his sailor stories
She could feel the ocean fall and rise,
She saw its rage and glory
But he had always told the truth,
Lord, he was an honest man
And Brandy does her best to understand

At night, when the bars close down
Brandy walks through a silent town
And loves a man who's not around
She still can hear him say.

She hears him say "Brandy, you're a fine girl
What a good wife you would be
But my life, my love and my lady is the sea"
"Brandy, you're a fine girl
What a good wife you would be
But my life, my love and my lady is the sea..."
