Lizzie thought it was time we did our own Sea (space) Shanty, so she went into our home studio, and this is what she came out with!

lyrics

Rolling Down To Tatooine

It's a damn tough life full of toil and strife
We Jedi undergo.
And we don't give a damn when the day is done
How hard the Federation blows.
'cause we're Senate bound from the Naboo ground
But quite a few hits had, did we
Now we venture there to make repairs
With the folk of Tatooine.

Rolling down to Tatooine, me boys, rolling down to Tatooine
We're Senate bound from the Naboo ground
Rolling down to Tatooine.

Once there in town, a boy was found
In this junkyard home.
His gift was strong, and it wasn’t long
For a plan to reflect in chrome.
A pod race win with this kid
Would give them what they need
To be Senate bound from this desert ground
Rolling down to Tatooine.

Rolling down to Tatooine, me boys, rolling down to Tatooine
We're Senate bound from the desert ground
Rolling down to Tatooine.

Once more they fly through the starlit skies
All the way to Corusant
The Jedi there warn to be ware
Of the Dark side of this lad
For Fear leads to anger, anger to hate
But Qui-gon swore he knew
To train one so young as a Padawan
ObiWan took the mantle, too.

Rolling down to Tatooine, me boys, rolling down to Tatooine
We're Senate bound from the dersert ground
Rolling down to Tatooine.

A moisture hand, a hidden lad
A pilot he would be
A fate unavoided, brought by a droid
Looking for an old man, he
Lost the world he knew, and so off he flew
To find his destiny
With a wookie, a sister, a smuggler, a nephew
A father he never had seen
Return of this Jedi was quite a life
Since we last left Tatooine.

Rolling down to Tatooine, me boys, rolling down to Tatooine
We're Empire bound from the desert ground
Rolling down to Tatooine.

So much to learn, but dues well earned
The sith were far astern
A native maid, her path outlaid
Decided to return
Been a long time since anyone lived here.
What’s your name, one man asked her
With a secret smile in the twin sunlight
My name is Skywalker

Rolling down to Tatooine, me boys, rolling down to Tatooine
In the twin moonlight, a Skywalker thrives
Rolling down to Tatooine.
