lyrics

Come the morning I will wake
And run the ladder of rivers down,
North to south bound now.
On summer boughs that sway and shake
In this easy living now
I'm traveling down.

You will arise again
Under the golden banner
Out on the shadowed plain
Where all your buried letters lay
Uncovered by the wind
That is forever blowing in.

And we will wake
To sail the ladder of rivers down,
North to south bound now.
In these swelling summer days
Of easy living now
We'll travel down.

And your pale eyes again
Will see the glowing desert,
We'll chart the rolling plain
And cast off in the fairest weather days
Borne by the wind...

To never search again
These cold flatlands
Or lose your way again
In this maze of sand
But to drift free
Over the Trinity on waves
Rolling away...

You will arise again
Under the golden banner
On the shadowed plain
In the fairest weather days
Borne by the wind...
On and away.
