• In another time's forgotten space
    Your eyes looked from your mother's face (note a)
    Wildflower seed on the sand and stone
    May the four winds blow you safely home

    Roll away the dew
    Roll away the dew
    Roll away the dew
    Roll away the dew

    I'll tell you where the four winds dwell (note b)
    In Franklin's tower there hangs a bell
    It can ring, turn night to day
    It can ring like fire when you lose your way

    God save the child who rings that bell (note c)
    It may have one good ring, baby, you can't tell (note d)
    One watch by night, one watch by day
    If you get confused, listen to the music play

    Some come to laugh their past away
    Some come to make it just one more day
    Whichever way your pleasure tends
    If you plant ice, you're gonna harvest wind

    In Franklin's tower the four winds sleep (note e)
    Like four lean hounds the lighthouse keep
    Wildflower seed in the sand and wind
    May the four winds blow you home again

  • The wheel is turning and you can't slow down
    You can't let go and you can't hold on
    You can't go back and you can't stand still
    If the thunder don't get you then the lightning will

    Won't you try just a little bit harder
    Couldn't you try just a little bit more
    Won't you try just a little bit harder
    Couldn't you try just a little bit more

    Round, round, Robin run around
    Gotta get back where you belong
    Little bit harder, just a little bit more
    Little bit further than you gone before

    Small wheel turning by the fire and rod
    Big wheel turning by the grace of God
    Every time that wheel turn round
    Bound to cover just a little more ground
