Goodbye, Goodbye

Album: Tooth & Nail (2013)
  • Goodbye to all my friends
    The time has come for me to go
    Goodbye to all the souls
    Who sailed with me so long

    The day has come at last
    The sails strain at the mast
    The years have quickly passed away

    Goodbye to all my friends
    The time has come for me to say
    Goodbye to all my friends
    Who sailed with me the longer way

    The bells have all been rung
    The songs have all been sung
    This long river has run its course

    Goodbye to all my friends
    The time has come for me to go
    Goodbye to all the souls
    Who sailed with me so long

    The coffee pot is cold
    The jokes have all been told
    The last stone has been rolled away

    Goodbye to all my friends
    The time has come for me to say
    Goodbye to all the souls
    Who sailed with me the longer way

    Goodbye
    Goodbye, goodbye
    Goodbye, goodbye
    Goodbye, goodbye
    Goodbye, goodbyeWriter/s: Billy Bragg
