Subject: ADD: Driftwood and Nails (Jack Hudson)
   Jack is having problems with his computer so he has asked me to post the Lyrics to Driftwood and nails here for Stewart.
It is nice to see new people discovering Jack's music via youtube....

(Jack Hudson)

We shore up the past
with driftwood & nails,
that once were a part of some fine ship we sailed.
Into the sunset to write on the sky,
our name & all of the reasons, we came & passed by.
We sailed oceans new.
High seas against the bow.
Without one Bon Voyage, we lost sight of land, somehow.
All the good luck charms & roses thrown into the wake,
may as well have been prayers, for all the difference they make.

Every journey made with you
was across uncharted seas.
'tis of thee, those memories are made.
From a word to a kiss.
From silence to a scream.
To an answer just over the page.

I have packed suitcases,
Large and small.
Thrown some things in a bag, thrown the rest at the wall.
In turn I have blessed & cursed the winds of change
But driftwood & nails are all that are meant to remain.


Repeat 1st verse.
