  • words and music by David Crosby
  • 1975 Staysail Music (BMI)
  • When I was a young man I found an old dream
  • was as battered and worn a one as you have ever seen
  • But I made it some new wings and I painted a nose
  • and I wished so hard up in the air I rose, singing
  • Carry me, carry me, carry me above the world
  • Carry me, carry me, carry me
  • And I once loved a girl
  • she was younger than me
  • Her parents kept her locked up in their life
  • and she was crying at night
  • she was wishing she could be free
  • `Course mostly I remember her laughing
  • standing there watching us play
  • For a while there, the music would take her away
  • and shed be singing
  • Carry me, carry me, carry me above the world
  • Carry me, carry me, carry me above the world
  • And then there was my mother
  • she was lying in white sheets there/and she was waiting to die
  • She said if youd just reach underneath this bed
  • and untie these weights,
  • I could surely fly
  • Shes still smiling but shes tired,
  • shed like to hear that last bell ring
  • You know if she still could she would
  • stand up, and she could sing, singing
  • Carry me, carry me, carry me above the world
  • Carry me, carry me, carry me
