When I was young and I lived by the mills
I'd walk the valleys and I'd wander the hills
Dreamed of my fortune and worked at my trade
Praying for something just to carry me away, far away
Carry me away

And I'd lay down in the night
I could feel the hills by my side
The stars burning cold and so high
In an empty sky

I had a woman in another town
Her hands were soft and her eyes were brown
I used to laugh at the things she would say
One day the wind came and carried her away, far away
It carried her away

She used to say
"Just lay me down in the night
Let me feel your love by my side
It seems like my life's drifting by
In an empty sky"

One day I knew there was nothing for me
I slipped away and went down to the sea
They told us, "Boys, it's the chance of your life
Over the waters where the new lands lie, far away
We'll carry you away"

She used to say
"Just lay me down in the night
Let me feel your love by my side
It seems like my life's drifting by
In an empty sky"

So lay me down in the night
Let me feel your love by my side
It seems like my life's drifting by
In an empty sky
