Folky sailing song. I want to sail around the world . . .and I think I will. "The wrong way around" is a term for those who do this against prevailing winds . . .the way I have done everything! Many life lessons on a sailboat.

Lyrics

There's a place across the ocean I'd like to know
No place in particular . . .I just want to go.
So I've packed provisions for a life-long sailin' quest
Plan for the worst . . .but I hope for the best.

No need to spin my wheels on land in there's a breeze
That can fill my sails and fill my soul and fill my memories
and the wind I need is born on all life's highs and lows
And I'll navigate each storm with wisdom every sailor knows . . .
Here goes . . . .

Chorus
So point you nose into the wind and hoist up every sail
Reef when there's a gale/Sail a reach across every sea
Feel the wind and the current where ever I am bound
Some say the "wrong way around"
But it seems all right to me.

"Bring the bow into the wind
Hoist up every sail
Reef when there's a gale
Try to reach across every sea.
Feel the wind and the current
Wherever I am bound
Some say "the wrong way around" . . .
But it seems allright to me.

Verse #2
They'll be island times that are safe and warm
And others that are broken by a sudden squall or storm
Some times I'll stay on course - but some times I'll heave to
Sometimes you gotta stop if you're gunna sail through
Here's what I'll do . . .

Chorus
So point you nose into the wind and hoist up every sail
Reef when there's a gale/Sail a reach across every sea
Feel the wind and the current where ever I am bound
Some say the "wrong way around"
But it seems all right to me.

Bridge
It doesn't matter where you go . .
It's HOW you make your way
through every high and low
That this world spins your way
. . .That's why I like to say . . .

Chorus
So point you nose into the wind and hoist up every sail
Reef when there's a gale/Sail a reach across every sea
Feel the wind and the current where ever I am bound
Some say the "wrong way around"
But it seems all right to me.
