lyrics

VALLEYS ALL OF BLUE

It’s a coarse and a hungry country
With valleys all of blue
You can ride in the vale for hours
And never rise to a view

Each is weary traveler
Each knows trouble and strife
Each is a soul gone so low
Lost to the meaning of life

Here’s a toast to the men behind me
Here’s a glass to the setting sun
To all who have cared for me roughly
‘Til my feelings they were numb

You who’ve said that you loved me
While you took aim with your gun
I regret to announce my departure
Our parting now has come

I look to the road less traveled
Where the air has a shimmer and shine
Where the clouds are never cast over
And tears run sweet like wine

Here I carry my burden
Quickened by the sound
Of a bird crying out to the north wind
While the mountain streams come down
