  • [Verse 1: John Darnielle]
    The day we set sail from England
    The wind behind us was fair
    The day we set sail from England
    There were smiling faces everywhere

    [Chorus] [x2]
    And the snow came down on New Hampshire today

    [Verse 2]
    The day we put the grain into the ground
    There were smiling faces all around
    And underneath the trees we planted when we landed

    When I was a child, I spoke with the language of a child
    But when I became a man, I put away childish things

    [Chorus] [x2]
