waltz across texas tonight lyrics – harris emmylou

(rodney crowell/emmylou harris)

the wind can blow cold, it moans and it cries
when it carries the sound of a thousand goodbyes
but if you listen tonight on that high, lonely plain
you’ll just hear my voice as it calls out your name.
you’ll just hear my voice as it calls out your name.

you’ve been on a road that just don’t seem to end
where that broken old heart of yours won’t ever mend
you’ve crossed over bridges and bridges they burn
so many rivers and so much to learn.
so many bridges and so much to learn.

but the moon is so full, the stars are so bright
and my hand is steady, my touch is light
look in my eyes, hold on real tight
and i’ll waltz you my darling across texas tonight.
i’ll waltz you my darling across texas tonight.

we both have known hard luck
and love that’s gone wrong
when the ghosts take the shadows and
the night takes too long
we folded our cards when the hand wasn’t strong
but that wheel will keep spinning long after we’re gone
yeah, that wheel will keep spinning long after we’re gone.

and the moon is so full, the stars are so bright
and my hand is steady, my touch is light
look in my eyes, hold on real tight and i’ll
waltz you my darling across texas tonight.

i’ll waltz you my darling across texas tonight
look in my eyes, hold on real tight
and i’ll waltz you my darling across texas tonight
i’ll waltz you my darling across texas tonight…
