|ACROSS THE GREAT DIVIDE|
|by Kate Wolf||Kate Wolf, Nancy Griffith|
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 ...
