That's when I saw him hauled away his own
Singing songs about the west
Next thing he's falling
Falling down again
Laughing about the things we said

And all this time I'm humming songs about the great divide
But never knowing falling

Up on the road now
Go down through the hills
Mighty wind won't take us down
Suddenly calling, calling back again
No to join our little town

And I've seen rivers shine
And I've been taking back before
The Rio Grande is rising

I could be right
If I think someone's fight
I could be wrong and unbelieving

That's enough to know now
Keep your head down low now
Take that time
Oh, but never mind

Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh de doe doe

Now it gets colder here at night
But the stars will give us light
As we huddle around the fire
Thinking all that we're a choir
Then we'll shine across the land
Taking hopeless in our hands
Where the mountains meet the forest
On the road that lies before us

And all this time I'm humming songs about the great divide
But never knowing fully

I could be right
If I think someone's fight
I could be wrong and unbelieving

That's enough to know now
Keep your head down low now
Take that time
Oh, but never mind
