lyrics

He took the long way down to the sea
Picking his way through the darkness to the beach
Stood there listening to the waves
Praying that one would carry him away

To the bottom of the sea
To the darkest place there is
Maybe one day they would find
The stones that carried him down

Now some will rise and some will fall
On the fortunes that buffet us around like some rag doll
Some will hang on that thin thread
Praying that someone will reel them back again

From the bottom of the sea
From the darkest place there is
Maybe one day they would find
The stones that carried him down

And where the tide goes
So will I
And where the wind blows
So will I
And where the sun shines down
On the waves that crown me
I will wait for grace to bring
Someone to rescue me from the bottom of the sea

about

Brian Ledford Port Townsend, Washington

Brian Ledford draws from his roots and what’s close to his heart and transforms it into great songs.

Music as much informed by The Clash as The Flatlanders. At turns as lush as Lanois, or as direct as Cash. The son of Oklahoma concrete finishers and Oilmen, he was born and raised in Texas based in Lubbock, Ft. Worth and Austin before relocating to the Pacific Northwest.
