Do you know what it's like
to be out on the waves?
Do you know what it's like
to be close to the grave?
And when you fear for your life
and to your God you do pray,
Do you know what it's like
to be out on the waves?

Up early in the mornin'
for there's a living to make,
You come home in the evening
and your whole body aches;
For the fishin' is hard, boys,
and you don't get a break,
Well, a strong man with guts,
oh well, that's what it takes.

Do you know what it's like
to be out on the waves?
Do you know what it's like
to be close to the grave?
And when you fear for your life
and to your God you do pray,
Do you know what it's like
to be out on the waves?

Workin' all day with your hands in the brine,
Haul in your nets to see what you can find;
And all that you get is water at times,
And a big empty net, well, it ain't worth a dime.

So, do you know what it's like
to be out on the waves?
Do you know what it's like
to be close to the grave?
And when you fear for your life
and to your God you do pray,
Do you know what it's like
to be out on the waves?

It's a mighty strange feelin'
when you're out there alone,
And the clouds move in quickly
and the wind starts to blowin';
And the sea she gets angry
and her waters do foam,
For there's many a good man
who has never come home.

So, do you know what it's like
to be out on the waves?
Do you know what it's like
to be close to the grave?
And when you fear for your life
and to your God you do pray,
Do you know what it's like
to be out on the waves?

Do you know what it's like
to be out on the waves?
Do you know what it's like
to be close to the grave?
And when you fear for your life
and to your God you do pray,
Do you know what it's like
to be out on the waves?

[FADING]
Do you know what it's like
to be out on the waves?
Do you know what it's like
to be close to the grave?
And when you fear for your life
and to your God you do pray,
Do you know what it's like
to be out .....
