Sailor And The Dancer Lyrics

Artist: The Incredible String Band
Album: Earthspan

Beneath some shaded planet
before this earth was born
We came together
and we danced in the early dawn
For my hands contain ten dances
that shall bear us into the night
Into the sea
and the moon's morning light
Night mimed a bow
and broke into the day
Fair sailors and their cautious friends
smiled on the sea
That reflected all their gazes
and danced with the air
The breezes filled the sails
high against the quay
High on the limpid waves the ship it did fly
Rising as a condor into the silvery sky
Passing through the arches that begin his earth
The sailors saw the scenic air
as air gave Earth it's birth
Gazing ahead towards today
They saw the fields of this world
They watched the first new dancers
As their bodies did unfurl.
