A Song and a Story: “The Voyage” #AtoZChallenge

I regret that I must share this song by Christy Moore, because it is so very cheezy, but I do love it so.  Join me on

The Voyage

“The Voyage” is the title track off the 1989 album by legendary Irish singer-songwriter Christy Moore.  It’s a long metaphor about a couple of people who love one another – a sailor and the first mate – going on the journey through their relationship.  To drive the metaphor home, the chorus ends with the lyric:

When we started the voyage, there was just me and you
Now gathered round us, we have our own crew

It’s so very, very, very cheezy, but I get …. emotional … when I hear it.  I even put it on a mixtape for Susan.  Luckily, she thought it was sweet and didn’t laugh at me.  And we continue our voyage together with our own crew gathered around us.

One thought on “A Song and a Story: “The Voyage” #AtoZChallenge

  1. So glad to hear this song and get to discover more songs by Christy Moore. For some reason I only know his John O’ Dreams, which I love.
