Words & Music by Wayne Francis

There's an old ship I have found
It is my shelter when the rain comes falling down
These lines I've earned upon my face
This turning planet draws and high noon summer can't erase
This I say to you my friend
The letter of the law is not ours to defend
The moon may have its way tonight with soldiers weary of the fight

Let the river run free and in, into the sun
Lest whoever may be wanting, should find a ship to sail upon
Where the river and sea are the union of one
Feel the wind at your back, clean and strong

Look to any compass point from here
The love that one man finds, ten more watch disappear
The northern lights like phantoms dance
The dreams dim one by one, all lost in tangled circumstance
Down by this old railyard tonight
The watchman passes by in dream dispersing light
Hold on for one more day my friend, where love and branches never bend

Let the river run free and in, into the sun
Lest whoever may seek glory, will find the wind to ride upon
And the truth we believe binding, is not undone

There's an old place I have found
It is my refuge when the darkness falls around
The moon may steal across the sky, the dawn returning by and by
