You light the torches
And I'll pour the wine

Living here was special

Hummingbirds while buzzards rise
Katidids and fireflies

Living here was special

Let's climb the hill (for the last time)
Look at all we did (all we've done)
Loving here was special

Redbud trees in early spring
Cactus flowers are opening
And loving you was special

Carry on while we're gone
Carry on while we're gone (we're leaving here)
Carry on while we're gone

Carry on while we're gone (we're leaving here)

Let's raise our glasses
Here's to Shacktoen Inn

Living here was special

Carry on while we're gone (cause we're leaving)
Carry on while we're gone (we're leaving)
Carry on while we're gone
(cause we're leaving here)
Carry on while we're gone (we're leaving here) ...
