10 BLACK HILL

South of the border
East of my heart
Sun going down
The land’s getting dark
There’s dust on my boots
Dust on my face
Never seen this much
Dust in one place

I’m tired and weary
Hungry and dry
I’m all sorts of things
You get when you’re high
On crossing the desert
On your own with a mule
The mule, it is lame
The man, he’s a fool

The road is steep
My love is deep
Take me to the deep

The sun in the sky
Has melted my brain
In this garden of stone
I’m growing insane
I’m stumbling up
Another black hill
The morning will see me
Stumbling still

The road...

Wish I was water
Wish I was spray
I’d form mighty waves
Keep rolling all day
Wish I was a rock
Patient and cool
I’d stay here forever
Awaiting your rule

The road...
