I'm Your Captain/Closer to My Home

We have received requests asking about whether or not Mark wrote I'm Your Captain. The answer is....

I'm Your Captain
Grand Funk Railroad
by Mark Farner

The tune that is remembered as "Closer To Home", is actually labeled "I'm Your Captain" on both the album sleeve and record label. It is from the album "Closer To Home", released by Grand Funk Railroad in June of 1970.

Everybody, listen to me, and return me, my ship.

I'm your captain, I'm your captain, though I'm feeling mighty sick.

I've been lost now, days uncounted,and it's months since, I've seen home.

Can you hear me, can you hear me,or am I all alone?

If you return me,to my home port,I will kiss you,mother earth.
Take me back now, take me back now,to the port, of my birth.

Am I in my cabin dreaming,or are you really scheming,to take my ship away from me.

You'd better think about it,I jsut can't live without it,so please don't take my ship from me. Yeah, yeah, yeah.

I can feel the hand,of a stranger,and it tightening,around my throat.

Heaven help me, heaven help me, take this stranger, from my boat.

I'm your captain, I'm your captain, though I'm feeling mighty sick.

Everybody, listen to me, and return me, my ship,

I'm your captain, yeah yeah yeah yeah
I'm your captain, yeah yeah yeah yeah
I'm your captain, yeah yeah yeah yeah
I'm your captain, yeah yeah yeah yeah

I'm getting closer to my home. I'm getting closer to my home.
