I was coming ‘round the corner when
I saw you and I froze
Such a confused mix of emotions, from
My head down to my toes
Should I laugh, should I cry
Should I try to make it to the border by sunrise
Should I run to your side,
Violate the order of a lifetime

We were young and you were certainly
More foolish than I was
But we would both go down together in the
Tempest of our love
Stolen nights, like a trance
Filling us with warm anticipation
Tender words, like a drug
Spoken ‘til our hearts were overtaken

Muddy Gap to Rawlins
You were in trouble again
I held you and I begged you
and you fooled me again
I hid you and I fed you
and covered your tracks
I let go of almost everything
that might last

You were saddling the horses
On that brisk November day
I can still remember how you saw me,
And turned away
Oh my love, is it so
Could it be you’d leave me in this prison
Can’t you see, my youth is gone
Please my darling change your cruel decision

I have taken all my sorrows and
The loss of you in stride
I have held my head up
While silently I cried
Where the watersheds divide
I have worked this land without complaining
Raising up your only child
Sheltering his heart and never blaming

Muddy Gap to Rawlins
I rode on back that way
Surely there’s something more
I could say
made it to the river
but the rain come harder still
couldn’t make the ford there
but I will
