The house lights blaze, the spotlights dim and the encore fades away
We've got five hundred miles to go and another show to play
But there's a few old die hard fans still hanging out back stage
They're the ones who have been faithful from the start

So we renew our old acquaintances and discuss the lives and times
Of Tommy, Toy and Ronnie and the ones we've left behind
And all the minstrel warriors who got old before their time
But they'll always have a lace here in our hearts

And it's time to pick up memories and remember our old friends
Do you think we'll ever see the likes of Stevie Ray again?

Sail away, it's time for moving on
This music is my mission and this highway is my home
While you sleep, we got promises to keep
And miles to go before the morning light
We're the tall dark ships that pass you in the night

Thank you for your kind words and for coming to show
It's so good to see you all again, we really got to go
The weather's getting stormy and they say it's gonna snow
And Omaha's a far piece down the line

We'll it's sure been fun but the time has come to get on out of here
The driver's getting nervous and the road crew's out of beer
And if the good Lord's willing, we're gonna see you all next year
And we'll drop you all a card at Christmas time

But these boys are getting restless and the hours getting late
And the time goes by so easy but that highway won't wait

Sail away, it's time for moving on
This music is my mission and this highway is my home
While you sleep, we got promises to keep
Miles to go before the morning light
We're the tall dark ships that pass you in the night

Sail away, it's time for moving on
This music is my mission and this highway is my home
While you sleep, we got promises to keep
Miles to go before the morning light
We're the tall dark ships that pass you in the night

We're the tall dark ships that pass you in the night
