Nantucket Sleighride (To Owen Coffin) by Mountain


Goodbye, little Robin Marie
Don't try followin' me
Don't cry, little Robin Marie
'Cause you know I'm comin' home soon
My ship is leavin' on a three year tour
The next tide will take us from shore
Windlass gather in sail and spray
On a search for the mighty sperm whale
Fly your willow branches, wrap your body 'round my soul
Lay down your reeds and drums on my soft sheets
There are years behind us reachin' to the place where hearts are beatin'
And I know you're the last true love I'll ever meet
And I know you're the last true love I'll ever meet
Starbuck is sharpenin' his harpoon
The black man is playin' his tune
An old soul is sleepin' his watch away
He'll be drunk again before noon
Three years sailin' on bended knee
We found no whales in the sea
Don't cry, little Robin Marie
'Cause we'll be in sight of land soon
Fly your willow branches, wrap your body 'round my soul
Lay down your reeds and drums on my soft sheet
There are years behind us reachin' to the place where hearts are beatin'
And I know you're the last true love I'll ever meet
And I know you're the last true love I'll ever meet
