about

Covered wagons, the expansion of America to the Pacific, hard times and harder work. The bond between two people broken by conflicting dreams.

lyrics

Under Western Skies


The canyon river rose
I watched the melting snow
Under western skies

I knew this day would come
When you would leave my home
Under western skies

You want to watch the sun
Sink behind the waves
Under western skies

So I bid you faretheewell
And hope you find your dream
Under western skies

Oh, but I will still remain
I’m rooted to this soil
I’ll live out all my days
In peace…and toil.

Your letter came today
Another baby born
Under western skies

I plow the fields again
And pray once more for rain
Under western skies

Oh, but I will still remain
I’m rooted to this soil
I’ll live out all my days
In peace…and toil.

Someday down the line
You’ll stand atop this hill
Under western skies

And gaze down on these fields
While you remember me
Under western skies

Oh, you’ll know that I remained
Rooted to this soil
And lived out all my days
In peace…and joy.

Oh…………….
