Lyrics

BRIDESVILLE CEMETERY ROAD

THE DAY ROLLS TO A STOP AS THE LAST LIGHT STEALS AWAY
THERE’S A COOL WIND AND HINTS OF RAIN
THE KOOTENAY SKY IS BRUISED AND GREY
I HEAR A VOICE CALLING ME FROM ACROSS THE YEARS
THROUGH THE GATHERING SHADOWS
IT’S MUSIC TO MY EARS

SHE WAS AS SOFT AS SUNLIGHT, BARELY NINETEEN
WITH HER LONG WILD HAIR OF GOLD
AND HER EYES OF MEADOW GREEN
IN A WEDDING DRESS ON A WARM SPRING AFTERNOON
NO ONE COULD EVER KNOW THAT WE’D BE APART SO SOON

AND I SEE HER NOW AS THE FIRST STAR SHINES IT’S LIGHT
SHE’S IN A TATTERED GOWN AND HER FACE BONE WHITE
AND SHE’S WALKING DOWN THE BRIDESVILLE CEMETERY ROAD

I SHIPPED OUT THAT FALL AS THE GREAT WAR CALLED MY NAME
HISTORY SWEPT ME FAR AWAY AND NOTHING
WOULD EVER BE THE SAME
IN A FIELD IN FRANCE I FELL AND TURNED TO DUST
NINETY-FIVE YEARS I’VE BEEN AWAY
AND ALL THE GUNS HAVE TURNED TO RUST

I STILL CAN REMEMBER HER ON THE DAY I WENT AWAY
WITH THE FEAR BURNING IN HER EYES AND NOTHING LEFT TO SAY
HER HEART WAS BEATING STRONG AND FIERCE AGAINST MY CHEST
AND NOW AFTER ALL THESE YEARS SHE WELCOMES ME HOME
TO TAKE MY REST

AND I SEE HER NOW AS THE FIRST STAR SHINES IT’S LIGHT
SHE’S IN A TATTERED GOWN AND HER FACE BONE WHITE
AND SHE’S WALKING DOWN THE BRIDESVILLE CEMETERY ROAD
AND SHE’S WALKING DOWN THE BRIDESVILLE CEMETERY ROAD
