Watching the sea till his day's work is done,
The boatman rows to the setting sun;
Catching his oars in the silver sea,
He leans on the wind as you lean on me.

Where the edge of the sea turns from blue to green,
There's a far-off shore that we've never seen.

When the moon comes up in your sea-green eyes,
And we sail away in the deep dark night,
I can't tell where you leave off and I begin;
Love is just a way of breathing out and in.

Where the edge of the sea turns from blue to green,
There's a far-off shore that we've never seen.

So cast away and both shall row,
There's no telling how long or where we will go;
Rock on the water, race with the sun,
Follow your stars as they shine one by one.

Where the edge of the sea turns from blue to green,
There's a far-off shore that we've never seen.

The above video was created by Bob Shannon of Cheney, Washington, in the mid 1980's shortly before the slow decline in offshore fishing. It features a fishing boat leaving the narrow and ofttimes dangerous mouth of Noyo Harbor, California, with the music to Kate Wolf's song in the background. The Harbor itself is tucked into the forested hills at the south end of Fort Bragg, California, and was shown at the end of the 1987 movie Overboard with stars Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell sailing out of the harbor.
