In Nova Scotia, where I grew up, the folks are kind and friendly. You always get a pleasant “hello” when you meet someone on the street and if you only pause for a moment on the sidewalk, cars will happily stop and let you cross. Along with these pleasant “hellos,” there is an art to saying goodbye. It begins in the kitchen and moves towards the doorway... once through the door there is more joyous conversation and then goodbyes in the front yard, and perhaps, in my father's case, a few last goodbyes through someone's open car window.
The bottle's nearly empty and the light is flickering low There's candle wax on the table cloth and our cheeks are all a-glow Our bodies, they are heavy but our spirits are feather light It's come the time, as it always does, for all to say goodnight
How it ever gets to this, I guess I'll never know We just can't stand to see it through and let each other go The food was good, the drink it flowed, and my glass was always full One goodbye should be enough but I guess it never will
Chorus: It's goodbye in the kitchen, So long in the hall, Farewell on the front porch and don't forget to call And before we know it, It's see you later in the the yard How sweet it is to have a friend who makes goodbye so hard
Well I guess it's time to tip my hat and bid you all adieu And Lord, He knows we've had laugh and a cry or two It takes a minute to say hello but forever to say goodbye 'Guess I'll always take my time no matter how I try
