This is a beautiful song to be sung at a funeral or memorial service or celebration of life for a friend who has passed away. I heard it done by Pint and Dale from the Pacific North West. (William Pint and Felicia Dale) Felicia plays the hurdy gurdy.
Steady As You Go

Here is my trnscription....feel free to offer edits...
STEADY AS YOU GO …WRITTEN BY Jennifer Cutting
SUNG BY WILLIAM PINT AND FELICIA DALE

You have always loved to travel
On the wind and land and sea
And you’ve sailed so many places
It can hardly be believed
Now the port where you are going
We’ve seen only in our dreams
Let our love keep you Steady As You Go

Many hands make your ready with a touch so sure and soft
Many strong arms to lift you as you go aloft
As you sail to forever
Where the wild waters flow
Let our love keep you Steady as You Go

Oh it’s love that bids you stay
Love that bids you go
In this port it’s fare thee well
While in the next they’ll shout hello
You can’t stay here in this harbor
That’s not what ships are for
Let our love keep you Steady As You Go

Chorus



And I hope that you’ll forgive us
Any harm we brought to you
And the joys you will remember
When your journey here is through
You will still be real as ever
Though you’ve sailed beyond our view
Let our love keep you Steady As You Go

chorus

And the sorrow in your leaving
May it open up our hearts
To the sorrow felt by others
So that we can do our pat
As we comfort one another
Then the healing time will start
Let our love keep us Steady As We Go

Chorus
May our love keep you Steady As You Go

Jennifer Cutting, America's favorite ethnomusicologist, Seems to have boundless energy. I don't know of anything this woman won't do.

And she's a very nice person, too.

Here's my transcription of Jennifer's recording:

STEADY AS YOU GO
(Jennifer Cutting)

You have always loved to travel
On the wind and land and sea,
And you’ve seen so many places
It can hardly be believed;
Now the place that you are going
We’ve seen only in our dreams,
Let our love keep you Steady As You Go.

CHORUS
Many hands make you ready with a touch so sure and soft,
Many strong arms to lift you as you go aloft;
As you sail to forever
Where the wild waters flow,
Let our love keep you Steady as You Go.

Well, it’s love that bids you stay here,
And love that bids you go;
In this port it’s fare-thee-well,
But in the next they’ll shout hello.
You could stay here in this harbor,
But that’s not what ships are for,
Let our love keep you Steady As You Go.
CHORUS

And I hope that you’ll forgive us
Any harm we've brought to you,
And the joy's what you'll remember
When your journey here is through;
You will still be real as ever,
Though you’ve sailed beyond our view,
Let our love keep you Steady As You Go.
CHORUS

And the sorrow in your leaving,
May it open up our hearts
To the sorrow felt by others,
So that we can do our part.
As we comfort one another,
Then the healing time will start,
Let our love keep us Steady As We Go.
CHORUS

May our love keep you Steady As You Go https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=werIeIPvbG0

This song makes me remember all the wonderful singers I've known on this journey.
I built my transcription on yours, Laurel. It was very helpful. I was in tears as I was transcribing.

Makes me remember putting katlaughing's into an inlet of the Chesapeake Bay at the Getaway.

Another recording from Jennifer Cutting's OCEAN Orchestra: Remember the Poor

yes, Joe... with Amos singing "My Sweet Wyoming Home". I was really honored to be given the task of distributing kat's ashes to folks near & far. (I still have a small amount, should anyone feel the need to give her another journey.)
