about

About the young rural worker unsure of where his future lies. Written for a young friend who started logging in the woods, and whose father and grandfathers were loggers too.

lyrics

When I was young and seventeen, I left to find the age old dream
It is true every boy will know one day he’ll leave his momma’s home
Broke my back on the mountainside, left my heart on this mountainside

I’ve punched these holes in the rocky ground, and I dug with only the dark around
I had a good boss but he died too, and everyone since has been a fool
Dark and cold on the mountainside, breaking our backs on this mountainside

And every night I sleep with you, in dream and sometimes nightmares
But pennies come and nickels go, and years go by still nowhere close
And I’m trying to leave the mountainside, getting off this damned divide

Working for what might be left, trying to make a long lost self
On the the trails of hopeful lives, that never quit so I keep trying
And I broke my heart on the mountainside trying to cross this damned divide

And to all those who listen it whispers down below: “Slow down, dig deep, and love your neighbor.” ... more
