Farewell Blues
©2003 Gibbens/Weston


It’s goodbye to youth and all its pleasure
Like shortage of cash and excess leisure.
Goodbye to youth and all its pleasure.

And so long to waiting any longer,
Feeling the feeling getting stronger.
So long to waiting any longer.

And farewell to this old guitar
By the light of the morning star.
Goodbye to this old guitar.

And down the road as in a daydream,
Farewell to things that ain’t as they seem,
Down the road as in a daydream.

It may be that there’s a meeting there,
Up ahead, I don’t know where,
It may be that there’s a meeting there.

I wish you happiness and increase,
I wish your journey will end in peace.
I wish you happiness and increase.

Everybody’s struggling in their love wars.
I hope one day we’ll find a good cause
For everybody struggling in their love wars.

In abundance of iniquity, I’m told,
The love of many shall wax cold,
In abundance of iniquity, I’m told.

But look, you have been told before,
Every man, woman, child must endure.
Look, you have been told before.
