Wind in the Wire

I'd been riding fence all day
Way up on the summer range
Found a place to make my bed
As the evening shadows spread
Beyond the campfire light
Through the stillness of the night
Came the call of the coyote choir
And the song of the wind in the wire
 
As it strummed the rusted strings
It sang of long forgotten things
Many moons and many suns
Of the real americans
When the arrow and the bow
Stopped the range of the buffalo
And the call of the coyote choir
Knew no song of the wind in the wire
 
As the ghostly balladeer
Hypnotized me, I could hear
Bugle calls and battle cries
Broken promises and lies
The spirits of the plain
Still sing their sad refrain
And the call of the coyote choir
And the song of the wind in the wire
 
Spirits of the plain
Still sing their sad refrain
And the call of the coyote choir
And the song of the wind in the wire
 

Gonna Walk That Line

I never been too good
At doin' right
I done mostly wrong
Most all my life
 
I never found a place
To settle down
But, baby, I do believe
I found it now
 
I'm gonna walk that line
Gonna tote that barge
Gonna lift that bail
Gonna work real hard
 
Doin' anything
That you want me to
Baby, I'm gonna walk
That line for you
 
Ooh, I'm gonna walk
That line for you
Ooh, I'm gonna walk
That line for you
 
Do anything
That you want me to
Ooh, I'm gonna walk
That line for you
 
Well the straight and narrow
It never was my path
And everlasting love
Never seemed to last
 
I used to be a tomcat
Out on the prowl
But, baby, I'm just
Your puppy dog now
 
I'm gonna walk that line
Gonna tote that barge
Gonna lift that bail
Gonna work real hard
 
Doin' anything
That you want me to
Baby, I'm gonna walk
That line for you
 
Ooh, I'm gonna walk
That line for you
Ooh, I'm gonna walk
That line for you
 
Do anything
That you want me to
Ooh, I'm gonna walk
That line for you
 
Ooh, I'm gonna walk
That line for you
Ooh, I'm gonna walk
That line for you
 
Do anything
That you want me to
Ooh, I'm gonna walk
That line for you
 

The Box

On the top shelf in the closet,
In the workshop where he spent his extra time
Was a dust wooden box
that I had never noticed 'til that time
 
And we set on the table
and carefully, we opened up the top
And stared into the memory
Daddy kept inside the box
 
There was a letter from Mama,
When she went out to Reno
To help her sister out in '62
 
And a flower from Hawaii,
when they went on vacation
It was the first time that my daddy ever flew
 
And the pocket knife I gave
To him on Father's Day
Years ago, I thought it had been lost
 
We all thought his heart was made of solid rock
But that was long before we found the box
 
I guess we always knew it_
but 'I love you' was hard for him to say
Some men show it easily
and some just never seem to find the way
 
But that night I began to see
the softer side of some I had lost
I saw the love he kept inside the first time,
when we opened up the box
 
There was a picture that was taken,
when he and Mom were datin'
Standing by his 1944 [1940 Ford?]
 
And a faded leather Bible,
He got when he was baptized
I guess no one understood him like the Lord
 
And the poem that he had written,
About his wife and children
The tender words he wrote were quite a shock
 
We all thought his heart was made of solid rock
But that was long before we found the box
 
We all thought his heart was made of solid rock
But that was long before we found the box
