“I am sailing, I am sailing
home again cross the sea
I am sailing, stormy waters
to be near you, to be free

I am flying, I am flying
like a bird cross the sky
I am flying, passing high clouds
to be with you, to be free

Can you hear me, can you hear me
thro’ the dark night, far away
I am dying, forever trying
to be with you, who can say

Can you hear me, can you hear me
thro’ the dark night far away
I am dying, forever trying
to be with you, who can say

We are sailing, we are sailing
home again cross the sea
we are sailing stormy waters
to be near you, to be free

Oh Lord, to be near you, to be free
oh Lord, to be near you, to be free
oh Lord”.

Citazioni.

Sailing is a song composed by Gavin Sutherland of the Sutherland Brothers in 1972, best known as a 1975 international hit for Rod Stewart. Gavin Sutherland would comment: “Most people take the song to be about a young guy telling his girl that he’s crossing the Atlantic to be with her. In fact the song’s got nothing to do with romance or ships; it’s an account of mankind’s spiritual odyssey through life on his way to freedom and fulfillment with the Supreme Being”. Written on the beach by Blythe Bridge, “Sailing” was recorded by the Sutherland Brothers – a duo consisting of Gavin and Iain Sutherland – in a June 1972 session: the brothers provided their own backing with Gavin on bass drum and Iain on harmonium – (Iain Sutherland quote:) “The original idea was it should have a Celtic feel to it” – and overdubbed their vocals. Issued as a single, the Sutherland Brothers‘ “Sailing” almost reached the official UK singles chart (then formatted as a Top 50), as “Sailing” peaked at #54 in July 1972, and the single’s sales were reportedly 40,000 units. The Sutherland Brothers had recorded “Sailing” subsequent to completing the tracks intended for their upcoming album release Lifeboat, and that album was issued in November 1972 without the inclusion of “Sailing“: included on the US edition of the Lifeboat album, “Sailing” by the Sutherland Brothers would make its UK album debut on the 1976 Sutherland Brothers‘ compilation album entitled Sailing“.
