Many's the time I've been mistaken,
and many times confused
Yes, and I've always felt forsaken,
and certainly misused.
Ah, but I'm all right, I'm all right.
I'm just weary to my bones.
Still you don't expect to be bright and bonvivant,
so far away from home,
so far away from home.


And I don't know a soul who's not been battered.
I don't have a friend who feels at ease.
I don't know a dream that's not been shattered,
or driven to it's knees.
Ah, but it's all right. It's all right.
For we've lived so well so long.
Still, when I think of the road we're travelin' on,
I wonder what's gone wrong.
I can't help but wonder what's gone wrong.

 

And I dreamed I was dying.
I dreamed that my soul rose unexpectedly,
and looking back down at me, smiled reassuringly.
And I dreamed I was flying,
and high up above my eyes could clearly see
the Statue of Liberty sailing away to sea.
And I dreamed I was flying.


And we come on the ship they call the Mayflower.
We come on the ship that sailed the moon.
We come in age's most uncertain hours,
and sing an American tune.
Oh, and it's all right, it's all right,
it's all right.
You can't be forever blessed.
Still tomorrow's gonna be another working day
and I'm tryin' to get some rest;
that's all - I'm trying to get some rest.

In The Country of Country. Nicholas Dawidoff. 1997

but well worth the visit

More than one hundred years ago,
a group of descendants of the
Pilgrims who sailed on the Mayflower
in 1620, saw the need for a
national society to honor
their memory. The intention was to
remember these Pilgrims who
established Plymouth Colony,
in what was then called the
northern part of Virginia.
