America the beautiful
I did a web search and found this phrase. Is this the one you were looking for?
"Though nothing can bring back the hour
of splendor in the grass, or glory in the
flower; we will grieve not, rather find
strength in what remains behind."
I'm grabbing my hat and coat
I'm leaving the cat a note
Quick call me a ferry boat-getting out of town!
