"Throw Me Down A Line" as written by and Richard Clapton....
Down river from my memories of all those summer years
You come riding by on horseback crowned with tears
I've watched you from the shadows behind this wall of trees
I would comfort you if I knew the words to speak

Hey, throw me down a line
You can't make it alone, it's a long hard climb
Hey, throw me down a line
I'll keep you company if you don't mind
Throw me down a line

Your friends have gone a little crazy from all that summer heat
And you sit down here crying in defeat
You are so confused and tired, but I know you've done your best
Now you're looking like a kid in your mother's dress

Hey, throw me down a line
You can't make it alone, it's a long hard climb
Hey, throw me down a line
I'll keep you company if you don't mind
Throw me down a line

Please let me ride with you cross this mountain
I too have no one to be sharing my lifetime with
'Cause I'm lost like you, not alone, we are two
Confused pilgrims

Hey, throw me down a line
You can't make it alone, it's a long hard climb
Hey, throw me down a line

I'll keep you company if you don't mind
Throw me down a line
Throw me down a line
Throw me down a line
