by Crosby, Stills, & Nash
All along the lee shore
Shells lie scattered in the sand
Winking up like shining eyes, at me
From the sea

Here is one like sunrise
It's older than you know
It's still lying there where some careless wave
Forgot it long ago

When I awoke this morning
I dove beneath my floating home
Down below her graceful side in the turning tide
To watch the seafish roam

And there I heard his story
From the sailors of the Sands of Marie
There’s an island today running away from here
Empty and free

From here to Venezuela
There's nothing more to see
Than a hundred thousand islands, flung like jewels upon the sea
For you and me


Sunset smells of dinner
Women are calling at me to end my tales
But perhaps I'll see you, the next quiet place
I furl my sails
