Under the Big Sky
here on the side of the trail
I hope
the faded sunset doesn’t find me here

My faithful companion
who nobody sees but me
is gone
he said that he’d return before too long
he said in is note he’d return before too long

The horse we rode in on
pulled up lame in the sand
his back
was always meant to bear a holy man

My faithful companion
left the shade of our tree
he said
he’d crawl to town and send back help for me

The river was whiskey
and pullin’ us in
I made to shore
but he’s drowning again

And I’m as useful now to him
as a pirate on dry land
lights out it’s 2am

17 bar stools
and 17 reasons to lose
behind
and empty glass I plotted all my moves

My faithful companion
says that we’re just paying dues
soon
we’ll take our guns and shoot through all those blues

The river was whiskey
and pullin’ us in
I made to shore
but he’s drowning again
