Lyrics

A Boy And His Son

Just a boy and his son
Sailing to an island
With guitars and a job to be done
As we gaze back ‘cross the water to the mainland
We can’t believe how fast the journey’s gone
So far for just a boy and his son

Just a boy and his son
Wading cross the lake bed
In another place another time long gone
In an old boat with a tackle box and handline
Staying ‘til the twilight shadows come
Too soon for just a boy and his son

He repeats his question
And in his eyes I see
The eyes of the old boy searching me

Just a boy and his son
Two pieces of the puzzle
Just a boy and his son once again
As the ferry cruises onwards to the island
I pray he gets his day just like this one
When he is just a boy with his son

As I gaze back cross the water to the mainland
I can’t believe how fast the journey’s gone
So far for just a boy and a son
