OUTWARD BOUND
(Tom Paxton)
Outward bound, upon a ship that sails no ocean
Outward bound, it has no crew but me and you
All alone when just a minute ago the shore was filled with people
With people that we knew
So farewell, adieu, so long, vaya con Dios
May they find whatever they are lookin for
Remember when the wine was better than ever before
We could not ask, we could not ask for more
Outward bound upon a journey without ending
Outward bound with uncharted waters beneath our bow
For behind, the green familiar shore is fading into time
And time has left us now
Outward bound, upon a ship with tattered sail
Outward bound upon a crooked lonesome trail
Things we learn, we'll just be satisfied in knowing
And we'll tell it to our kids as a fairy tale
