Lyrics


By now my heart is taffy
I laugh when she's laughing
I laugh when she cries
I used to be her cowboy
when I threw in the towel boy
a part of me just died

Well I know, yes I know
It's a long long road
that horizon melts in the heat
Long ago, long ago
on a range called home
I turned my back on where it all began

By now I miss my water
I'm thirsty for the slaughter
but my well is dry
Since I put down the whiskey
she's picked up the pieces
but none of them are mine

Well I know, yes I know
It's a long long road
that horizon melts in the heat
Long ago, long ago
on a range called home
I turned my back on where it all began

In a saddle of nogahide
I slowly turn the pages
though the life I see is not quiet mine
the dream becomes contagious
I can almost feel the wind
rustle through her dress
to where it all began
