  1. nantucket sleighride (1971) albümünde yer alan, owen coffin adında genç yaşında ölen bir denizciye ithaf edilen müthiş şarkı.

    goodbye, little robin-marie
    don't try following me
    don't cry, little robin-marie
    'cause you know i'm coming home soon

    my ships' leaving on a three-year tour
    the next tide will take us from shore
    windlaced, gather in sail and spray
    on a search for the mighty sperm whale

    fly your willow branches
    wrap your body round my soul
    lay down your reeds and drums on my soft sheets
    there are years behind us reaching
    to the place where hearts are beating
    and i know you're the last true love i'll ever meet
    and i know you're the last true love i'll ever meet

    starbuck's sharpening his harpoon
    the black man is playing his tune
    an old salt's sleeping his watch away
    he'll be drunk again before noon

    three years sailing on bended knee
    we found no whales in the sea
    don't cry, little robin-marie
    'cause we'll be in sight of land soon

    fly your willow branches
    wrap your body round my soul
    lay down your reeds and drums on my soft sheets
    there are years behind us reaching
    to the place where hearts are beating
    and i know you're the last true love i'll ever meet
    and i know you're the last true love i'll ever meet.
