If you can't come along, love, then you must stay behind
I must bid you goodbye, though I hate to see you cry
Fare thee well, bound for the mountains and the sea
It's so hard to explain, why I'm leaving once again
It ain't nothing much, I guess, but the thing I love the best
In this land, rambling this land from shore to shore
I have walked, I have thumbed, I've rode buses, I've rode trains
When I think of where I've been, I just have to go again
In this land, see if everything is still the same
So fare well, my dear, and I must be on my way
I'm a mighty restless man in a mighty restless land
Fare thee well, bound for the mountains and the sea
