WHITE MOUNTAIN GOODBYE
( Bill Staines)
My eyes danced the White Mountain sunset
And gazed on a lake skimmed with gold.
I've sung all the songs that I could
sing to the stars;
Now I must sing to the open road.
And it's goodbye, you bloodthirsty
I wish that the fish had your bite.
Goodbye to my friends, the White
And oh, I wish I could stay one more
This hoopla city life, it holds no secrets;
The puce neon ceiling, it hides the stars;
But I'll see all of you that I can see in
Until one day turns me north. (repeat 1st)
