Many's the time I've been mistaken, and many times confusedYes and I've often felt forsaken, and certainly misusedAh but I'm alright, I'm alright, I'm just weary through my bonesStill you don't expect to be bright and bon-vivantSo far away from home, so far away from homeAnd I don't know a soul who's not been batteredI don't have a friend who feels at easeI don't know a dream that's not been shattered or driven to its kneesBut it's alright, it's alright, for we live so well, so longStill, when I think of the road we're traveling onI wonder what's gone wrong, I can't help it I wonder what's gone wrongAnd I dreamed I was dying, I dreamed that my soul rose unexpectedlyAnd looking back down at me, smiled reassuringlyAnd I dreamed I was flying, and high up above my eyes could clearly seeThe statue of liberty, sailing away to sea, and I dreamed I was flyingBut we come on a ship they called MayflowerWe come on a ship that sailed the moonWe come in the ages' most uncertain hours and sing an American tuneAnd it's alright, oh it's alright, it's alright, you can be forever blessedStill tomorrow's gonna be another working day and I'm trying to get some restThat's all I'm trying, to get some rest
