Endless Sky

album: Endless Sky (1993), track 2 of 12
author: Chuck Pyle
publisher: Bee 'n' Flower Music BMI

Born on a rainy night
Raised in the blowing wind 
Waiting for a ride on the next storm blowin' in 
For the cows I never cared 
It was ridin' that got me there
That and coffee at dawn out under the blue frontier
   Give me a fence to mend and a river bend 
   And a dry night under the stars
   A harmonica moon, a coyote tune
   Played on a saddle guitar
   Though I've settled down at the edge of town
   I remember my lonesome eyes
   Seeing the freedom of the tumbleweed 
   And the spirit of the endless sky
Traded in my working spurs 
For a life of the His and Hers 
She's one of a kind, Lord, 
I know I'm one lucky guy 
Besides, nothin's quite the same 
Cowboyin's gotten too tame 
And the roof of a pickup takes up 
Too much of the sky
     Out there my heart is speaking so loud and clear
     Here it's only a whisper, and it's so hard to hear
