Captain, My Captain

Chorus:
I hear your voice, right behind me,
As we sail through our days
Captain, my captain, show me the way

When we take the tunnel you cry: “Dad, beep the horn!”
Your joy in each echo eclipsing the scorn
Of the other grim drivers who pass unaware
Of the vast hidden treasures that you can find there

Chorus

From high on your helm you’re the lookout for us
You search the horizon for a truck, train, or bus
With each passing year your interests will change
I hope that my sense of your wonder remains

Chorus

Along highway ten, I say: “look there’s a train!”
Then I realize that no one’s behind me, again

I hear your voice, right behind me, in echoes today
Captain, my captain, show me the way
Captain, my captain, you brighten my days
Captain, my captain, show me the way
