or
Emmylou Harris

One last gaze upon the sun
Bid farewell to everyone
Kick that bucket out the door
Where I'm going I won't need it anymore

Going lay my burden down
Take a bird's eye look around
From the tall pines of Carolina
All the way to wall of China

[Chorus: ]
So I'll go sailing round the room
Through my window, cross to silver moon
No flesh and bone to hold me
I'll finally set my soul free
When I go sailing round the room

Life maybe be just but a dream
Float my boat on down the stream
To wake up on a different shore
(?) ain't something I've ever been before

I could be a drop of summer rain
Falling down on an Oklahoma plain
Oh leave the world behind me
Look around and you will find me

[Chorus: ]

(I will be) in the smoke from Monaloha
Morning mist on the Shenadoah
(I will be) a grain of sand in the Kalahara
Magnolia by the Mississippi
(I will be) birdsong when day is breaking
Words of love when your heart is aching
(I will be) blue bonnet by the highway
I'll be everywhere and always

[Chorus: ]
Through my window, cross to silver moon
No flesh and bone to hold me
I'll finally set my soul free
When I go sailing round the room
