Tumbleweeds

© 2021 CS Taber

I know you’re my brother winding down the road

I reach for your burden if you’ll let me bear the load

I feel your restless spirit, broken and alone

But you vanish through my fingers, dust and ash and bone

 

It’s dark skies and moon shade, I’m living in my boots

Ain’t no time for cowboys, no place to put down roots

I love you like a brother, broken and alone

But you vanish through my fingers, dust and ash and bone

 

I’m chasing tumbleweeds no matter where they blow

The only sign you passed this way is the shadow of a crow

But I’m chasing tumbleweeds no matter where they go

I’ll never get to Abilene before the winter snow

 

I know you’re my keeper, eyes blacker than the night

I’m wandering like Moses searching for the light

I feel you in my nightmares, broken and alone

But you vanish through my fingers, dust and ash and bone

 

It’s cold nights and prairie dust, I’m living in my skin

There’s a hole in my serenity and the wind is whipping in

I love you like a stranger, broken and alone

But you vanish through my fingers, dust and ash and bone

 

I’m chasing tumbleweeds no matter where they blow

The only sign you passed this way is the shadow of a crow

But I’m chasing tumbleweeds no matter where they go

I’ll never get to Abilene before the winter snow

 

I’m chasing tumbleweeds no matter where they blow

The only sign you passed this way is the shadow of a crow

But I’m chasing tumbleweeds no matter where they go

I’ll never get to Abilene before the winter snow
