Words and music by Jethro Tull

Would you join a slow marching band?
And take pleasure in your leaving
as the ferry sails and tears are dried
and cows come home at evening.

Could you get behind a slow marching band?
And join together in the passing
of all we shared through yesterdays
in sorrows neverlasting.

Take a hand and take a bow.
You played for me; that's all for now, oh, and never
mind the words just hum along and keep on going.
Walk on slowly --- don't look behind you.
Don't say goodbye, love. I won't remind you.

Dream of me as the nights draw cold
still marking time through Winter.
You paid the piper and called the tune
and you marched the band away.

Take a hand and take a bow.
You played for me; that's all for now, oh, and never
mind the words just hum along and keep on going.
Walk on slowly --- don't look behind you.
Don't say goodbye, love. I won't remind you.

I don't often see Jethro Tull being referenced, but I'd like to. This is a beautiful and haunting song, and it will be playing in my mind as I start my day. Thank you for that, and may an unexpected blessing find it's way to you this evening in return.

I don't know the tune to this but the lyrics are simply haunting. Very much in the vein of how I often feel in Autumn. Here's hoping you are experiencing more of a sweet melancholy than a sad.
