Travelling Shoes

Travelling shoes, travelling shoes

The time will come for you to go
It be might be quick, it could be slow
But while the going’s good
Just you hold it in your hand
And when there’s nothing left for you to do
Your work’s been done and the day is through
Put on your travelling shoes

Travelling shoes, travelling shoes

With just the clothes upon your back
And that lucky, floppy, hippy hatDon’t forget to take some coins
For the ferryman
And when you’re ferried to that brand new home
I’m sure you won’t feel so alone, and you can
Take off your travelling shoes

And when you’ve finally gone
This old world will tumble on
I’ll know that you’ll have been
And I’ll see you in my dreams

And when they ask you what you’ve done
Say that you travelled wide and far
And watched the past turn into sand
In shades of black and blue
And that if you could you’d travel on
But suddenly the ferry’s gone (and you’ve)
Hung up your travelling shoes
