Lyrics

To sail on a dream on a crystal clear ocean,
To ride on the crest of a wild raging storm
To work in the service of life and living,
In search of the answers of questions unknown

JD ahd the uncanny ability to bring us to the place he sang about. Be it on the wings of an eagle or hawk, a rocky mountain, or riding the waves with the good ship Calypso. A true artist, gone too soon.
look...can you see the porposes riiding the waves, jjumping and going deep again***†*
surfacing... h o w jubilant they play..I want to be with them
Cousteau's son continues his legacy even today.
john denver left to soon
Lifts you up even without words
lol! go jaques! go john!
How many people remember that this song, a big, big hit in its day, commemorates the ship of Jacques Cousteau, so popular on the National Geographic television specials long before the days of Discovery Channel?
