(17) Dream of the Drowned Submariner (4:57)

Dream of the Drowned Submariner (Mark Knopfler)

LYRICS
We run along easy at periscope depth
Sun dappling through clear water
So went the dream of the drowned submariner
Far away from the slaughter
Your hair is a strawflower that sings in the sun
My darling, my beautiful daughter
So went the dream of the drowned submariner
Cast away on the water
From down in the vault, down in the grave
Reaching up to the light on the waves
So she did run to him over the grass
She fell in his arms and he caught her
So went the dream of the drowned submariner
Far away on the water
Far away on the water

I wonder if Mark thought about crash submarine Kursk when he wrote this song.

I have been thinking about this song while watching the brilliant new BBC TV show Vigil.

I personally think of my dear Grandfather who was a Submariner during WW1. He was aged 18 based at Victory (Portsmouth) and was a Stoker aboard one of the submarines based there. He was invalided due to stepping onto a 'hot' plate causing his feet to 'curl'...He was sent to Haslar hospital to recover. I have all his paperwork and medals still...
