Lyrics

Daddy Is Sailing Home
© Bill Burnett
Home is where the heart is
So the wise men say
Hearts without a true love
Have no place to stay
When your heart is lonely
You will search across a raging sea
David plowed the oceans, weathered every squall
Made it past the islands where the sirens call
Till at last he found the harbor where his heart was meant to be
David is sailing home at last
David is coming home
David is sailing home at last
David is coming home
Who could have imagined what the fates had planned
For the little girl child born in Newfoundland
How her heart would journey far across the ice and sea and foam
She searched the horizon till she spied the boy
Who years ago set sail from Southern Illinois
And he hove up beside her
Now at last they both could head for home
Carol is sailing home at last
Carol is coming home
David is sailing home at last
David is coming home
Home now they're anchored down forever say goodbye to stormy weather sailing home
And their love will be a lighthouse in the storm
Home is where the heart is
So the wise men say
All our hearts are gathered on this wedding day
Gathered at the pier we're here to wish you both a welcome home
David is sailing home at last
David is coming home
Carol is sailing home at last
Carol is coming home
Coming home...Coming home
Daddy is finally home
