This song is how our love for old roots music makes us feel - free to roam in a wide-open world full of possibilities, and also a little heartsick at times. It’s a love song to the cowboys working alone in the back country, the desert country, the open country, any country. We always imagined mandolin and bass on it with us, and John Reischman and Patrick Metzger came along on this gentle gallop through the rolling West.


See the barely shifting, sands of time, there’s ebb and flowing from your door to mine
There’s ebb and wander, reason and rhyme; I’m a salted cowboy in the old world style

I’m a rambling rover, with far to go, I’m headed up country, over hills I go
And when I’m wandering, where no one knows I’m the happiest cowboy in God’s green grove

I’m the happiest rambler, without you here, far ahead I see your shadow on the hills
I stay well back, out of love and fear; no more will I chase you, no more I will

With time comes loving, with time comes tears; I learn each time you leave my arms
It’s a passing feeling for you, not me; so I wander behind, I wander afar
