Intro. (Electric Guitars and Organ)
Nash: If you smile at me I will understand
'cause that is something
Everybody everywhere does in the same way.
Crosby: I can see by your coat, my friend you're from the other side
There's just one thing I would like to know
Can you tell me please who won the war?
Nash: Say can I have some of your purple berries?
Crosby: Yes, I've been eating them
For six or seven weeks now I haven't got sick once
Crosby & Nash: Probably keep us both alive.

Wooden ships on the water very free and easy
Easy, you know the way it's supposed to be
Silver people on the shoreline let us be
Talkin' about very free and easy.

Instrumental (Organ)
Horror grips us as we watch you die
All we can do is echo your anguished cries
Stare as all human feelings die
We are leaving, you don't need us.

Instrumental (Organ + Electric Guitar)
Go take a sister then by the hand
Lead her out of this foreign land
Far away where we might laugh again
We are leaving, you don't need us.

Instrumental (Electric Guitar)
And it's a fair wind
Blowin' warm out of the south o'er my shoulder.
Guess I'll set a course and go.


Ending (Electric Guitars and Organ)
