"Mendocino County Line (with Willie Nelson)" 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

    counted the stars on the fourth of july
    wishin we were rockets bursting into the sky
    talking about redemption and leaving things behind
    as the sun sank west of the mendocino county line

    excuses monday morning feeling washed away
    our orchestrated paradise couldn't make you stay
    you danced with the horses through the sands of time
    as the sun sank west of the mendocino county line

    i have these pictures and i have these photographs
    to remind me of a time
    these pictures and these photographs
    let me know i'm doing 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 nothing but right
    feelin' near immortal every friday night
    lost in our convictions, lips stained with wine
    as the sun sank west of the mendocino county line

    i have these pictures and i have these photographs
    to remind me of a time
    these pictures and these photographs
    let me know i'm doing 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
    wishin we were rockets bursting into the sky
    talking about redemption and leaving things behind

    i have these pictures and i have these photographs
    to remind me of a time
    these pictures and these photographs
    let me know i'm doing fine
    we used to be so happy
    once upon a time
    but the sun sank west of the mendocino county line
