"Before I Go" as written by and John Hiatt....
I've been sleeping for some hours
I just woke up and you were there
Like the morning, like the flowers
Sunlight whispering in my ears

A red tail hawk shooting down the canyons
Put me on their windy rocks
And I will be your true companion
When we reach the other side

And I will try, but I will stumble
And I will fly, you told me so
Proud and high or low and hollow
Many miles before I go
Many miles before I go

And I can't decide which way to travel
On the ground or in the sky
And all my schemes have come unraveled
And all that's left is you and I

And I will try, but I will stumble
And I will fly, you told me so
Proud and high or low and hollow
Many miles before I go
Many miles before I go

Ghosts on trees, there are ghosts on wires
Asking questions, showing signs
Shivering with truth, they are lighting fires
Lighting fires all down the line

And I will try, but I will stumble
And I will fly, you told me so
Proud and high or low and hollow
Many miles before I go
Many miles before I go

Proud and high or low and hollow
Many miles before I go
Many miles before I go
