Take the dirt from the high oak tree
The eyes of the branch and the tears of the leaf
Build you a path to where the sun don't shine
Farther from the far and wide

Cross the waves beneath the sky
Lay me down in the far and wide
Know that I'll be satisfied
Farther out and far and wide

Gimme a girl with strong knees
Tie me with rope to the trunk of the tree
Mountains will moan and stones will slide
Farther from the far and wide

Cross the waves beneath the sky
Lay me down in the far and wide
Know that I'll be satisfied
Farther out and far and wide

Tracks from the train run north and south
Cut through the hate of my parents house
Sister she cried for the very last time
I swear I'll take her far and wide

Cross the waves beneath the sky
Lay me down in the far and wide
Know that I'll be satisfied
Farther out and far and wide

Apples don't fall and snakes inside
Kiss the rail and catch your eye
He'll get his before you die
Drag you down to the far and wide

Cross the waves beneath the sky
Lay me down in the far and wide
Know that I'll be satisfied
Farther out and far and wide

Please oh please let my soul be free
And spread my ashes across the sea
Take your name off of my name
So you can marry again
