LET ‘EM GO   
©1991 Sally Fingerett, Green Fingers Music, BMI

Let ‘em go, let ‘em be
They’d maybe like to have a look around, to see what they can see
 Let ‘em go, don’t make them stay
There’s an open door, waiting for them, they’d like to go that way

CHORUS      

You gotta let them go, you gotta let them go
You gotta let them go, when they want to go

Don’t keep them here - nothing you can say
It’s a selfish heart that longs to love for one more day
They need to go, they see the light
Shining on the silence - the grace, the peace of mind

CHORUS

Set them free, cut them loose
Give the gift of kindness a traveler can use
Let ‘em go, let ‘em be
Send them off with love, send them off with dignity.
