(Bill Danoff - Emmylou Harris)

I don't want to hear a love song I got on this airplane just to fly
I know there's life below me
But all that you can show me is the prairie and the sky
I don't want to hear a sad story filled with heartbreak and desire
The last time I felt like this I was in the wilderness and the canyon was on fire
And I stood on the mountain in the night and I watched it burn
I watched it burn God I watched it burn.

I would rock my soul in the bosom of Abraham
I would hold my life in his saving grace
I would walk all the way from Boulder to Birmingham
If I thought I could see just see your face.

--- Instrumental ---

(Well, you really got me this time) you got me this time
And the hardest part is knowing that I survived
And I've come to listen for the sounds of the trucks
As they move down on Highway 95
And pretending it's the ocean coming down to wash me clean
To wash me clean if you know what I mean.

I would rock my soul in the bosom of Abraham
I would hold my life in his saving grace
I would walk all the way from Boulder to Birmingham
If I thought I could see just see your face...
This song is from the album "All I Can Do [RCA Victor]", "You Are", "All I Can Do/New Harvest...First Gathering [Sony]" and "The Tour Collection".
