"Mendocino County Line" as written by Matthew Michael Serletic and Bernie Taupin....
Counted the stars on the Fourth of July
Wishing we were rockets bursting in the sky
Talking about redemption and leaving things behind
As the sun sank west of the Mendocino County line

As fierce as Monday morning feeling washed away
I orchestrated paradise, couldn't make you stay
You dance with the horses through the sands of time
As the sun sinks west of the Mendocino County line

I have these pictures and I keep these photographs
To remind me of a time
These pictures and these photographs
Let me know I'm doin' fine
I used to make you happy once upon a time
But the sun sank west of the Mendocino County line

The two of us together felt nothin' but right
Feeling near immortal every Friday night
Lost in our convictions, left stained with wine
As the sun sank west on the Mendocino County line

I have these pictures and I keep these photographs
To remind me of a time
These pictures and these photographs
Let me know I'm doin' fine
I used to make you happy once upon a time
But the sun sank west of the Mendocino County line

I don't talk to you too much these days
I just thank the lord pictures don't fade
I spent time with an angel just passing through
Now all that's left is this image of you

Counted the stars on the fourth of July
Wishing we were rockets bursting in the sky
Talking about redemption and leaving things behind
I have these pictures and I keep these photographs
To remind me of a time
These pictures and these photographs
Let me know I'm doin' fine
We used to be so happy once upon a time, once upon a time
But the sun sank west of the Mendocino County line
And the sun sank west of the Mendocino County line

    General Commenti love this song. Leann Wolmac sounds so good with Willie Nelson. I love the lyrics! "Wishing we were rockets bursting into the sky" That's deep! I also like "Feeling near emortal every friday night" I used to feel that way when I was with my e boyfriend. But I don't talk to him much any more and those feelings kind of faded away. To me this song is about a couple that was one in paradise together, they used to make each other very happy, but now there love has faded away, but they still think of each other some times. Every body has been through this, that's why it's such a great song, every body can relate.

    General CommentCouple lyric corrections:
    "As fierce as Monday morning feeling washed away
    I orchestrated paradise, couldn�t make you stay
    You dance with the horses through the sands of time"

    It's actually:
    "Excuses Monday morning"
    "Our orchestrated paradise"
    "You danced"

    and then:
    "Lost in our convictions, left stained with wine"
    It's:
    "Lips stained with wine"

    this is such a beautifully written song. I love it. My dad and I sing it karaoke every now and then. It sounded like a good idea since he sings Willie and I sing Lee Ann Womack separately anyway. =D
