Jack's Mannequin Ten Days Gone Lyrics

Last updated: 06/15/2012 11:00:00 AM

She's reading in the bedroom
The dog is in the yard
And I just got back from traveling hard

I've been ten days gone
I've been ten days gone 'cross the sea
With my girl in a house in the trees
I love her she knows
But sometimes my love goes
'Cross the sea

Paulette is in the garden
It's the first day of the fall
Lately I'm not getting no sleep at all
She said stay till you're strong
Soon you'll be gone
'Cross the sea

With your girl in a house in the trees
I love her she knows
But sometimes my love goes
'Cross the sea
The sea
The sea
The sea

I went to meet the boatman
He was smoking on his pipe
He said son you look ready
To travel tonight
I think he's right

Soon I'll be gone 'cross the sea
With my girl in a house in the trees
I love her she knows
But sometimes my love goes
'Cross the sea
Because she knows in the oceans I'm free
And it makes her so sad
But she never gets mad when I leave
