The Longest Song Wiki


These lyrics are based off the video released by The Longest Johns in April 2020

Fare thee well, ye icy acres
Fare thee well, ye whaling grounds
Fare thee well, ye banks of Greenland
Weary whalers homeward bound


Homeward breezes bend the blossom
Where the oak and the apples grow
God forgot the green in Greenland
Made the flowers from ice and snow


Home where grasses lace the meadows
By the waters running free
And the rivers sweetly flowing
Turn towards the open sea


Six long months we've been a-hunting
Through a hell of frozen flame
Now like sails, our hearts are billowing
As we turn for home again

{Chorus x2 til End}
