Chorus:
Come on get your oars and row, darling
Come on get your oars and row
We've got tide and the river rising
Come on get your oars and row

Come up on your feet and walk, my baby
Rise up on your feet and walk
We've got arms reaching out to catch you
Haul up on those feet and walk

In the morning call my name, my darling
In the morning call my name
We grow old, young; we birth, we die
And somehow rearrange

Some live and change the world with grace
And a vision and a strength of mind
Some rise from trouble, some lend a hand
And some keep trying to find

Watch that little boy go walking, my lover
Watch him as he learns to run
Watch him as he rounds the corner out of sight
Then tumbling back into our arms he comes

When it's time to say goodbye, my darling
When it's time to say goodbye
We'll live on in the old and the young ones
Dreaming down a quiet line
