Sail Away Lyrics - Oak Ridge Boys

Review The Song (1)

Across the bay a lady waits to hold me tight,
And my boat and I are ready to set sail.
If the weather keeps on holdin' and the wind is right
I'll be wrapped up in my sweet one's arms tonight.


And we will sail away
On the wings of love into the night
Cast out our fortunes on the sea
Then we will go to sleep together
With the rockin' of the water
Dream of how our life will someday be
When she sailed away with me

As I skip across the waves my sails are high and full,
My mind is on the one I wait to see.
And I dream about an island somewhere in my mind,
Where someday I will take her off with me.


Then a smile comes upon me as I look across the bow;
I see a lady on the side.
But she will wait no more as I head for the shore,
Cause tonight I'm gonna take her for a ride.

Chorus x2
(fades out)

Who wrote this great sailing song? | Reviewer: HB Beverly | 6/15/2007

This is a great sailing song for those of you out there that like, or perform Jimmy Buffett songs. I'd like to hear Jimmy cover this, as it's right up his alley. The Oak Ridge Boys were obviously searching for something that would help them break out of the same old quartet type songs they'd been doing when they picked this one out. The imagery is definitely not country, and more suited for the then-known Pop artists.

Being a Parrothead act myself, I don't have any ORB albums or CDs, so does anybody out there know who wrote this beautiful song? It's going on my list of songs to play out on gigs today.
