Thread Name: Lyr Req: Christian Island (Gordon Lightfoot)
Subject: Lyr Req: Christian Island??
Well over 30? years ago I knew someone who sang a song - of which I can only recall bits -

'Sailing down the summer wind, I've got whiskers on my chin, and I like the mood I'm in....

She's a good old ship and she'll make the trip...across the waves...?...shining.when the summer ends we'll return again to the lee of Christian? Island

Tall and stong she sails along, I call her silver heels, and I know just how she feels,
She's a good old boat and she'll stay afloat, across the waves etc

I'd love to find it again. My daughter (who is now in her 40s!) loved to hear me sing the bits I knew and recently asked me if I remembered it. I'm sure some kind 'catter will post the words right away!

Possibly Louden Wainwright 111 ??
