    The Telling Takes Me Home

    Let me sing to you all those songs I know
    Of the wild, windy places locked in timeless snow
    And the wide, crimson deserts where the muddy rivers flow
    It's sad, but the telling takes me home

    Come along with me to some places that I've been
    Where people all look back and they still remember when
    And the quicksilver legends, like sunlight, turn and bend
    It's sad, but the telling takes me home

    Walk along some wagon road, down the iron rail
    Past the rusty Cadillacs that mark the boom town trail
    Where dreamers never win and doers never fail
    It's sad, but the telling takes me home

    I'll sing of my amigos, come from down below
    Whisper in their loving tongue the songs of Mexico
    They work their stolen Eden, lost so long ago
    It's sad, but the telling takes me home

    I'll tell you all some lies, just made up for fun
    And the loudest, meanest brag, it can beat the fastest gun
    I'll show you all some graves that tell where the West was won
    It's sad, but the telling takes me home

    And I'll sing about an emptiness the East has never known
    Where coyotes don't pay taxes and a man can live alone
    And you've got to walk forever just to find a telephone
    It's sad, but the telling takes me home

    Let me sing to you all those songs I know
    Of the wild, windy places locked in timeless snow
    And the wide, crimson deserts where the muddy rivers flow
    It's sad, but the telling takes me home
