OMM CD0701-1

began as inspiration by a quote from William Shedd in the fall of 1977. After wrestling with the lyrics with friend, engineer and co-producerRuss Hopkins, I took the demo, went sailing with friend and boat-builder Jeff Lilley, and together we launched this finished beauty.

a ship may be safe in a harbor,

at anchor close to the shore

yeah, a ship may be safe in a harbor,

but that ain’t what ships were made for.

 

a child may be safe in a mother’s arms,

there may be safe from harm

a child may be safe at home

but that ain’t what a child was made for.

 

chorus:

ships were made for sailin’ across the high seas

more ships and sailors rot in the port,

than ever are drowned in the sea. (x2)

 

when you’re riding the anchor, and the shore is alee

and you smell a storm on the breeze,

call up the captain, shorten the sail,

seek safe harbor, or run to the sea. chorus

 

help your children to lay a strong keel,

teach them to loft a fair line

they’ll build their vessel with beauty and care,

and launch on the rising tide. chorus

 

a ship may be safe in a harbor,

at anchor close to the shore

yeah, a ship may be safe in a harbor,

but that ain’t what ships were made for.

 

That ain’t what a child was made for

That ain’t what you were made for.
