Stepstone
Woody Guthrie

I stood on the stepstone when schooldays was o'er
Long for the time to go by
Now that it's gone, I stand here tonight
Bid this old stepstone goodbye

Goodbye to my stepstone, goodbye to my home
God bless the ones that I leave with a cry
The field will be widening and I will be gone
To ramble this wide world alone

I stand on my stepsyone at eventide now
The wind whistles by with a moan
Now it is gone and I stand here tonight
Goodbye to my stepstone and home

Goodbye to my stepstone, goodbye to my home
God bless the ones that I leave with a cry
The field will be widening and I will be gone
To ramble this wide world alone

It's hard to be parted from those that we love
When reverses in fortune have come
The world's strongest heartstrings are broken in twain
From the absence of loved ones and home

Goodbye to my stepstone, goodbye to my home
God bless the ones that I leave with a cry
The field will be widening and I will be gone
To ramble this wide world alone
