This day is getting older and fading light, it's beautiful
This wind is blowing colder and too soon I feel it's pull
Still I took all my chances earned myself an even score
Tried to learn my lessons well
And I don't have the answers for those questions any more
Only love can be both heaven and hell

So sturdy up sturdy up your heart for the road is long ahead
I'll be with you even though we're apart
But your road is yours to tread
And so it goes and so it goes and so it goes
Slows your mind mind mind
So it goes and so it goes and so it goes slows your mind mind mind mind mind

I've grown old on this ocean gave her all my stronger years
Gave my wife my devotion when she died the ocean my tears
I've tried to teach you well son all of everything I knew of how to live
This life be true don't bow your head to no-one and no matter what you do
If you start then see it through

So sturdy up sturdy up your heart for the road is long ahead
I'll be with you even though we're apart
But your road is yours to tread
And so it goes and so it goes and so it goes
Slows your mind mind mind
So it goes and so it goes and so it goes slows your mind mind mind mind mind
