These are just the simple facts I will relate to you.
Though they are not connected, each and every one is true.
If they seem a bit untidy, well, unraveling them is fun.
I will not stand corrected, I have not harmed anyone.
I just let it ride, ride, let it ride. Leave on the evening tide, just let it ride.

When I listen to my heart, I sometimes fail to find
one sane and simple answer on the bright side of my mind.
Even when I'm sleeping, I can't seem to unwind, I just let it ride.

I knew a man from Windsor who went to Detroit every night.
And stateside of the tunnel, customs agents gave him flight.
He threw his stash in the river and his bedroll on the ground
and when they finally got there, a sleeping man was all that they found.
He just let it ride, ride, let it ride. Leave on the evening tide, just let it ride.

Hear the steeple bell ring out above my lobster pots.
I might be out here fishing, man, but that ain't where it stops.
The mouths I feed are many and they all say thanks a lot, they just let it ride.

One day when I'm old and gray and consider what's gone by,
I always will be proud of every tear I've ever cried
and all of the old jokes we told around the candle light
to all those tender damsels who had helped us through the night.
They just let it ride, ride, let it ride. Leave on the evening tide, just let it ride.

I'm gonna let it ride, here's to the girls of London and the ones from Montreal.
We never will forget them, we still fantasize them all.
I knew one in St. Louis on a Missouri afternoon.
I met one up in Shanghai and another in Rangoon.
I just let it ride, ride, let it ride. Leave on the evening tide, just let it ride.
Ride, ride, ride, I'm gonna let it ride. Leaving on the evening tide, just let it ride.
