Emmylou Harris Lyrics

Sailing Round the Room by Emmylou Harris


[Verse 1:]
One last gaze upon the sun
Bid farewell to everyone
Kick that bucket out the door
Where I'm going I won't need it anymore
Gonna lay my burden down
Take a bird's eye look around
From the tall pines of Carolina
All the way to the wall of China

[Chorus:]
So I'll go sailing round the room
Through my window across the silver moon
No flesh and bone to hold me
I'll finally set my soul free
When I go sailing round the room

[Verse 2:]
Life may be just but a dream
I row my boat on down the stream
To wake up on a different shore
Wind up as something I ain't never been before
I could be a drop of summer rain
Falling down on an Oklahoma plain
I won't leave the world behind me
Look around and you will find me

[Chorus]

[Bridge:]
(I will be)
In the smoke from Mauna Loa
Morning mist from the Shenandoah
(I will be)
A grain of sand in the Kalahari
Magnolia by the Mississippi
(I will be)
Birdsong when day is breaking
Words of love when your heart is aching
(I will be)
A bluebonnet by the highway
I'll be everywhere and always

[Chorus:][x2]
When I go sailing round the room
Through my window across the silver moon
No flesh and bone to hold me
I'll finally set my soul free
When I go sailing round the room
Through my window across the silver moon
No flesh and bone to hold me
I'll finally set my soul free
When I go sailing round the room
