Sad cowboy camphire sing-a-long song


I’m not gonna be sand slipping through your fingers
to the ground; I’ll be a mountain with my head up
in a cloud where the wind howls and the rain pours down
lightning and thunder splinter trees and shake the boulders
so I hold it all together waiting for a change in the weather
the sea will never claim this granite heart

I’m not gonna be sad neither looking out this dirty window
on my mountain I’ll survey all lies below
You can travel far and wide I’ll always have you in my sight
I wonder if you hurt like me inside? When we ought to be
bound together: instead I’m likely as never to see your
lovely face come through that door again

The tide rolls in the sand will roll it back again
but there’s no end and we’re loosing ground
and all would surely drown were it no for one more grain
com rolling down the mountain: a granite heart
broken by the wind

I’m not gonna be sad sobbing in my pillow
in a high mountain meadow. From here I apprehend
the vast cosmos! In my bedroll under the stars how I wonder
where you are. A cold wind stokes the embers and I long
to hold you tender. But in the wee hours I hear that lonely coyote
howl; he and I both know time is running out.
