This song begins in Junior's backyard on the Fox River at 5AM in Green Bay. The Huron Cement ship is docked there. It follows the shore up to Door county. The brown eyes, hair and trees serve as a diversion to the heartache.... The RRR Ranch, Iowa City, spring '82


A ship sat docked in the harbor
Huron Cement painted on the side
a seagull flew by calling out
to a clear blue sky
a smokestack flashed in the distance
as the sun began to rise
a smile shone through the corner
of your dark brown eyes


And the northwind began to blow
through your hair and the trees
all along the shore
through my heart as you said
you had to go
down the road I still feel it blowing
clear and cold

The ship still sits in the harbor
though the winds changed course
the hot summer air blows
through an open car door
just as we're sitting there talking
I feel a change in the night
and the feeling starts to shine
through the faint starlight


I'm standing here alone
as the clouds fill the sky
the ship's on its way down south
leaving its cargo behind
It's time for me to leave
you're already long gone
I'll never really know
but I'll be back before too long
