Come Take A Trip In My Airship - George Evans (1870-1915), words by Ren Shields
Recorded (1904) by J. W. Myers. Also Johnny Cash, Natalie Merchant, Claudia Schmidt & Sally Rogers, and Jeff Warner.

I once loved a sailor
Once a sailor loved me
He was not a sailor
Who sailed on the wide rolling sea
He sailed in an airship
Free as a bird on the wing
And every Sunday evening
He’d fly past my window and sing

Come take a trip on my airship,
Come let us sail to the stars;
Come let us fly off to Venus,
Come take a trip around Mars;
No one will see when we're kissing,
No one will know when we spoon;
Come take a trip in my airship
And we'll visit the man in the moon.

One night while sailing away from the crowds
We passed through the Milky White Way
While idly drifting, and watching the clouds
He asked if I'd name the day
Just by the Dipper, I gave him my heart
The sun shone on our honeymoon
We swore to each other, we never would part
And we'd teach all the babies this tune


Jeff Warner added his own lyrics.
We sang with the birds in the morning,
Danced with the clouds in the eve,
He was lord of the mountains,
And I felt I was queen of the sea.
I love my sailor,
How I long for the day
When he flies through my window,
And these are the words he will say.
