Lyrics
Many's the time I've been mistaken and many times confused
Yes and I've often felt forsaken and certainly misused
Oh but I'm alright I'm alright 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

Don't know a soul who has not been battered
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
Oh but it's alright it's alright for we've 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
Looking back down at me smiled reassuredly
I dreamed I was flying high up above my eyes could clearly see
The statue of liberty sailing away to sea
And I dreamed I was flying

We come on the ship they call the Mayflower come on the ship that sails the moon
We come in the age's most uncertain hours and sing an American tune
Oh but it's alright it's alright can't 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
