I've been walkin' in my sleep

Countin'troubles 'stead of countin' sheep

Where the years went I can't say

I just turned around and they've gone away.

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

It's gone away in 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.

It's gone away in yesterday ...

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.

It's gonna away in yesterday ...
