(Words and Music by Joan Baez)

    "You've loved me exquisitely."
    "I tried to."
    "Can we be best of friends now?"
    "I never lied to you."
    "And can I love you forever?"
    "Sure," she said and smiled
    "But will you?"

    I wish there was some new way
    To sing about a full moon
    Poured down on us like a thousand rivers
    In Stephanie's room
    And you said you'd remember always
    The shadows on the hills below us
    But will you?

    You never once tried to sell me
    A bill of goods I wouldn't buy
    But I'm seasoned and I know a pirate
    By the devil in his eye
    And the only thing you ever stole from me
    Was laughter and some love I made
    To fill you

    White snow in the morning
    Kind of frightened me
    But you'd go sailing anyway
    Things are different at sea
    You know I'll never try and change your habit
    As sure as you know if your ship sinks
    It'll kill you

    And all the lovely ladies who came before me
    Are very much the same
    As the others soon to follow
    In your merry little game
    I guess I just want to be remembered
    Especially and frequently
    Like Stephanie

    Five red tail hawks are circling
    Above us in the sky
    You said they'd bring good luck
    And then you said goodbye
    You smiled and said, "I'll see you
    Sooner than you think."
    But will you?
