lyrics

Jackson

I left my home backcountry
been drinking water straight from holes
tonight I just been thinking some
staring in the coals

summer heat has lost its hold
I’m rolling off the mountain like a boulder
my heart is aching and I think you know
I’m heading back to jackson

what you said is what you’ve done
if I drew the wrong conclusion
may god bring me gently down
and humor my confusion

but he has never felt the peace
or the presence of the light
or seen the color of your skin
or reached for you at night

big horn valley steal my life
too many shots and one long night
I got to see if my hunch is right
push further west to jackson

wouldn’t mind to laugh again
see who’s left and even cry
watch the medicine wheel spin
you know I said I’d try

what you said is what you’ve done
if I drew the wrong conclusion
may god bring me gently down
and humor my confusion

may he urge my horse to fly
and swiftly cross the prairie
but never say she was a fool
to think that she could marry



any other pathway
through tarnished hills and canyon
couldn’t have made me to find
a handsomer companion

now the rain and leaves come down
my face is furrowed ground
my heart’s a mansion all for me
unless we meet in jackson

what you said is what you’ve done
if I drew the wrong conclusion
may god bring me gently down
and humor my confusion

but he has never felt the peace
or the presence of the light
or seen the color of your skin
or reached for you at night
