He was just a country kid, trying to find his way
Living in a world, that was full of yesterday
He heard a different drum, in the heat of the sun
He would choose how to live, before the day was done

Jumping from the train, he was running to be free
To a cabin by the lake, that was hidden in the trees
While the others went to war, and fell like autumn leaves
For the loss of love, he'd take some time to grieve

Let the woods grow tall around him
Let the sun and rain surround him
Let his music keep on sounding let him be

Snow faded into spring, many times for the king
In his palace of evergreen he would hide there never seen
But then one day we found him as a humble old man
They offered him a pension but he wouldn't take a hand

Let the woods grow tall around him
Let the sun and rain surround him
Let his music keep on sounding let him be

Just let him be alone
Walking in the full moon
Let him be alone
He's already home

The old cabin's gone, it burned to the ground
They go looking still to find him but he doesn't make a sound
60 years of walking down, this long road alone
He's earned the right to stay and choose how to go

Let the woods grow tall around him
Let the sun and rain surround him
Let his music keep on sounding let him be

His world surrounds him
The sun and rain's all around him
His music keeps on sounding let him be
Just let him be

Let him be
Just let him be
