MountainNantucket Sleighride (To Owen Coffin)

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
