Caroline Herring - Maiden Voyage Lyrics


It was a maiden voyage
She rode shotgun in the back
We made snow angels in the motel tire tracks
The traffic thinned, it parted just for us
Through rain and wind, through ash and rust
We saw the white dome, like a gleaming breast
But our eyes were on the White House
And to hell with all the rest
The masses gathered drinking frozen margaritas
At the 8th and G Capitol Hill Cantinas

It goes like this
You take your hand
You lift it up and put it on your heart
And there you stand
Singing, “This land is your land, this land is my land”

A little body so packed with clothes
Disappearing into hordes
Lining up in useless rows
Of three million people
Ashamed and accused
Scared to say where they’re from
Angry their name’s been used
I held my girl as she fell asleep

At the noontime hour
At the inaugural weep
A man said to me, “you are living in the present moment”
And I felt shut out, cold, tired and all alone

It goes like this
You take your hand
You lift it up and put it on your heart
And there you stand
Singing, “This land is your land, this land is my land”

The privileged held while the masses flowed
Just like a mighty river running through my soul
My girl cried for a flag
Something she could understand
And we marched through the street
As I held her hand
The good days come
Not just the golden dies
As the giant sleeps under cumulus skies
We sing and dance and scream our names
Sleep the sleep of the weary
And drive home again

Honey, it goes like this
You take your hand
You lift it up and put it on your heart
And there you stand
Singing, “This land is your land, this land is my land”

It goes like this
You take your hand
You lift it up and put it on your heart
And there you stand
Singing, “This land is your land, this land is my land”
