I've been walking at dusk just
walking
With these lonely man's blues on
my back
I've been down to the well
And I've been to the Liberty Bell
But it looks to be
Getting a crack

And I've been talking about love
just talking
And it seems like I don't get
nowhere
So maybe I ought to go
To just where I don't know
But it looks to be
Other than here

And if I was a lighthouse I would
shine out on the ocean
If I was a train I would always run
on time
Safely on their way I would send
God's weary travelers
And when my time was done I
would leave it all
Behind

Well I've been thinking about war
just thinking
I've been beating my plowshares
thin
I sought my own redress
I read the Gettysburg Address
but old Abe it seems
A hard road to win

And I've been playing my guitar just
playing
And I'm running out of good things
to say
I saw what there was to see
And they give me a Bachelor's
degree
And I think it's time now
That I was away

And if I was a lighthouse I would
shine out on the ocean
If I was a train I would always run
on time
Safely on their way I would send
God's weary travelers
And when my time was done I
would leave it all
Behind
