Well let me get your boots for you
I’m sure that I’ll be fine
Darling I’m sure, but that’s not what I had in mind

Then leave that sink alone
I’m sure that they can wait ’till morning
There’s one more drinking cup
we will leave tonight unwashed

So let me be your come back down
Let me be your gettin’ on
Let me be the first voice as you step down from that boat
Tell me of the sea and foam
A thousand ocean-miles from home
The simple gift is the song you hear from this small familiar shore

You’ve seen the sun from all around
and happily you’re so
this old world has yet to give you up
But if there were given more,
to this tiny happy shore
When the purpose that was fine
freed itself from that divine

So let me be your come back down
steady as a hand to hold
Let me be the first voice as you step down from that boat
Tell me of the sea and foam
A thousand ocean-miles from home
The simple gift is the song you hear from this small familiar shore
