"Harm's Swift Away" as written by and Townes Van Zandt....
There is a home out of harms swift way
I set myself to find
I swore to my love I would
Bring her there
Then I left my love behind
The desert was long
The mountains high
The road ran steep and winding
The promises so easily made
Unbearable, yet binding

Oh me, oh my
Who's gonna count my time
Oh me, oh my
Who's gonna count my time

Time will go, it never stays
Memory locked in her passing
Try, oh try to cling to her
'Til she becomes everlasting
The world's still blue
My word's still true
I feel I'm turning hollow
She does as she please
If ever she leaves
I'll strangle upon my sorrow

Oh me, oh my
Who's gonna mark my time
Oh me, oh my
Who's gonna mark my time

The road is past, tomorrow the sky
Between sometimes is blinding
Someday soon when I turn to cloud
I will fly on her wings somehow
Wrapped in the road and filled with above
The ground seems to fade away
Hold to the earth like a newborn child
Pray she returns someday

Oh me, oh my
Who's gonna mark my time
Oh me, oh my
Who's gonna mark my time

Oh me, oh my
Who's gonna mark my time
Oh me, oh my
Who's gonna mark my time

Oh me, oh my
Who's gonna mark my time
Oh me, oh my
Who's gonna mark my time
