On the Robert E. Lee  (Album Version)

On the Robert E. Lee (Album Version)

Neil Diamond

Hey
Look at the way she's wavin' her sail
It's a wondrous sight to see
People hurry on down from every town
Have a look at the Robert E. Lee
Proud and strong and made to be free
Can't go wrong on the Robert E. Lee

Got the sun in my eyes
And the wind in my face
And it's good just to be alive
Gonna set out tonight for New Orleans
I won't sleep till I arrive

And if I'm lucky,
I'll find a young lady under the stars
And we'll dance the night away

Somebody wake me and say it's a dream
Leadin' me far from my home
And haven't you noticed
Despite what it seems
You can't deny it's you and I alone

Maybe spend my life just workin' the land
Maybe livin' from day to day
But I'm free tonight in New Orleans
If I like it, I just might stay

Proud and strong and made to be free
Can't go wrong on the Robert E. Lee

Got the sun in my eyes
And the wind in my face
And it's good just to be alive
Gonna set out tonight for New Orleans
I won't sleep till I arrive
