Some now left a child and did not even care
Before the first shots of the battle here had even pierced the air
Yes they run now like them children to those arms of mother earth
Trying to pretend as if it was a day before their very birth

Be me, I just grab these ropes that me and mine have left behind
And I stare up to that mountain that I know I got to climb
I keep towing that line, hmmm
I keep towing that line, hmmm

But down in basements choked with smoke, child of the past
All them dreams come up for air around here but they can only gasp
And all them old men they sit staring as life slips out of their grips
Only to fall and disappear beyond their cracked old fingertips

Be me, I just grab these ropes that me and mine have left behind
And I stare up to that mountain that I know I got to climb
I keep towing that line, hmmm
I keep towing that line, hmmm

I keep towing that line, hmmm
I keep towing that line, hmmm

But down in ditches by that road I call my own
All them gypsies come up cursing now and all just throwing stones
Yes they're big men now to settle down your life's all stale and cold
As if I could spend my life the way they do just as they're told
So if you should find me living low when the miles have passed me by
And it seems that I have left now all that I could love behind
I'm just towing that line, hmmm
I'm just towing that line, hmmm
