1. The Hard Hills

From the recording Rock Another Day

In cart Not available Out of stock


I’m alone below a desolate sky
You’re all the way to Abilene
I started to write you a song of farewell
But I express so much less than what I mean
Out here in the hard hills
Your song has gone astray
Yes, words are the devil sometimes
They wouldn’t do you justice anyway
There’s a vicious wind tonight
Made me lose that muse of mine
The verses run away and hide behind my back
Laugh and refuse to rhyme
Once again I pick up the pen
To say I miss your sweet embrace
Then I cross it out and tear up the page
It all seems so commonplace
It’s no use, no use at all
I’ll love you in silence till I die
While the moon looks down on a poor little fool
Who can’t even say goodbye
