Across The Great Divide

In the style of

Nanci Griffith

Lyrics

i've been walkin'
in my sleep
countin' troubles
instead of
countin' sheep

where the years went
i can't say
i just turned around
and they're gone away

and i've been siftin'
through the layers
of dusty books
and faded papers

they tell a story
i used to know
and it was one
that happened
so long ago

and it's gone away
yesterday
now i find myself
on the mountainside
where the rivers
change direction
across the
great divide

now i heard
the owl a-callin'
softly as
the night was fallin'
with a question
and i replied
but he's gone
across the borderline

and he's gone away
yesterday
and now i find myself
on the mountainside
where the rivers
change direction
across the
great divide

the finest hour
that i have seen
is the one
that comes between

the edge of night
and the break of day
it's when the darkness
rolls away

and it's gone away
yesterday
now i find myself
on the mountainside
where the rivers
change direction
across the
great divide

and it's gone away
yesterday
now i find myself
on the mountainside
it's where the rivers
change direction
across the
great divide
