Words and music by Jeffrey Pepper Rodgers, based on the traditional tune “Sally Goodin”
Grand prize winner of the John Lennon Songwriting Contest
From the album
Humming My Way Back Home

Fly away
Drop what you’re doing
Gray skies will soon be bluing
No doubt am I entertaining
No reason for explaining

Been too much anticipating
Fed up with contemplating
No more will I be waiting

‘Cause we’ve got
Stones on our shoulders and steps to climb
We’re losing our breath in the crush of time
Gather the weight and the questions on your mind
And leave it all behind

Fly away
Stop with the teasing
I got a bag of reasons
No way can I be going
No matter how it’s blowing

Been too long, too much dealing
Today I got a feeling
This moment is for stealing

‘Cause we’ve got
Stones on our shoulders and steps to climb
We’re losing our breath in the crush of time
Gather the weight and the worries on your mind
And leave it all behind

Repeat verse 1

No doubt and no reason
No waiting, no teasing
No talk and no secret
Just spread your wings and fly
Fly
