Lyrics

I?m Gone

Little bitty minnow swimming in the creek
Shining in the midday sun
Hugging the banks where it ain?t too deep
Wonderin? where the river runs
Somehow he gets the notion there?s a great big ocean
Just beyond the bay
And as he swims downstream, you can almost hear him say

I?m gone -- headin? for the deep blue sea
I?m gone -- don?t you worry none ?bout me
I?m on a mission, it?s a grand tradition I?m proud to carry on
So don?t you cry, just say goodbye -- I?m gone

Tiny baby bird with a bright red breast
Dependin? on his mama for worms
One by one, she kicks ?em out of the nest
It?s about to be his turn
He doesn?t have a clue what he?s supposed to do
But he?s gonna learn real soon
And when he takes wing, you can hear him sing this tune

I?m gone ? heading for the clear blue sky
I?m gone ? don?t you know I was meant to fly
I?m on a mission, it?s a grand tradition I?m proud to carry on
So don?t you cry, just say goodbye -- I?m gone

And so it goes for all God?s creatures
Every boy and girl
When they come of age, it?s a natural feature
To wanna see that big ole world
It?s such a thrill to see your children
Turnin? loose the apron strings
But it?s bittersweet ? the joy that moment brings

I?m gone ? heading for the great unknown
I?m gone ? with everything I learned at home
I?m on a mission, it?s a grand tradition I?m proud to carry on
So don?t you cry, just say goodbye -- I?m gone
