Many's the time I've been mistaken, and many times
confused Yes and I've often felt forsaken, and
certainly misused Ah but I'm alright, I'm alright,
I'm just weary to my bones Still you don't expect
to be bright and bon-vivant So far away from home,
so far away from home

And I don't know a soul who's not been battered I
don't have a friend who feels at ease I don't know
a dream that's not been shattered or driven to its
knees But it's alright, it's alright, for we lived
so well, so long Still, when I think of the road
we're traveling on I wonder what's gone wrong, I
can't help it I wonder what's gone wrong

And I dreamed I was dying, I dreamed that my soul
rose unexpectedly And looking back down at me,
smiled reassuringly And I dreamed I was flying,
and high up above my eyes could clearly see The
statue of liberty, sailing away to sea, and I
dreamed I was flying

But we come on a ship they called Mayflower We
come on a ship that sailed the moon We come in the
ages' most uncertain hours and sing an American
tune And it's alright, oh it's alright, it's
alright, you can be forever blessed Still
tomorrow's gonna be another working day and I'm
trying to get some rest That's all I'm trying, to
get some rest
