Hornsby, Bruce - Swan Song Lyrics




This is no fond farewell
You can be sure I could wish
It was no farewell at all

It's been a good long run
Oh, to be sure I don't regret much
Not much at all

I'm gonna love the night away
Gonna do what I want to any old day
And all at once I know the clouds
Gonna clear for me

And I will do all right
Well in truth, I might
I may be stumbling round on some cold night

And I will miss the times when we were so right
Although it seems so long ago, so long
This is my swan song, I'm gone, gone

This is no sorrowful day
You can be sure I've got
No axe to grind at all

It's circumstance or burn out
You can be sure I've been grinding
Till I'm grinding to a halt

Sometimes it's the right thing to cut the cord
You've been holding on hard but your hands get sore
Sometimes it's worth it, but sometimes you wonder what for

And I will do all right
Well in truth, I might
I may be stumbling round in some dim light

And I will miss the times when it was so right
Although it seems so long ago, so long
This is my swan song, I'm gone, gone

And I will do all right
Well in truth, I might
I may be stumbling round on some cold night

And I will do all right
Well in truth, I might
I may be stumbling round on some cold night

And I will miss the times when we were so right
Although it seems so long ago, so long
This is my swan song, I'm gone, gone
This is my swan song, I'm gone, gone
I'm gone, yeah, I'm gone
I'll be long, long gone, long gone

Hornsby, Bruce Swan Song Comments
  1. Demond Wilson

    This will be my Funeral song. Its time to say goodbye and I love you all. Now there was some truth about the song. We will never know where we really go when we are gone. "And I will do alright Well in truth, I might I may be stumbling round on some cold night". Its a reality that we all face but until then lets enjoy the limited time we have on this earth. Passing along the knowledge to the next generation and hope we can learn from our mistakes. We don't know if we are going to heaven or hell. We don't know if we are going to be reincarnated. We don't know if we end up in a dark void. We don't know. What is more important is what we leave behind. "This is my swan song, I'm gone, gone."

    Beautiful song

  3. Mark K

    When someone that I know dies, I play this song to remember the good times we had together, and that we all will some day have our own "Swan Song"

  4. Vicki Kobliner

    While Springsteen is called "The Boss", I think this Bruce is more deserving of the title.
