Lyrics

Bones
Tim Mueting ©2011
Starin’ out at this old dirt road afraid what I might find
Searchin’ for a granite stone that I hoped would ease my mind
Headin’ south out of Yankton, snow streamin’ cross the road
I know it’s out there somewhere, I can feel it in my bones

The miles start to take their toll and a picture comes to mind
A giant man, with a gentle smile in a better place and time
But through the years his heart grew cold and he found himself alone
All that he had loved was lost he could feel it in his bones

Chorus

Sometimes you win, Sometimes you don’t
Sometimes you pay tie price, Sometimes you won’t
You roll the dice you play your cards
You fight the battles and you wear the scars

The old man was a carpenter he molded wood with his hands
There were lines etched in his face like footprints in the sand
The time had come to pay his dues to make his journey home
The last time I saw that man I could feel it in my bones

Here I am in this prairie town I drive up through the snow
Standin’ near that granite stone he’s lyin’ peaceful there below
I fight the tears and fears and hear a whisper way down low
He said the time had come to find your peace, I can feel it in my bones

Chorus

Starin’ out at this old dirt road afraid what I might find
Still searching’ for that granite stone that I hope will ease my mind
Headin’ south out of nowhere trying to find my way back home
I know it’s out there somewhere I can feel it in my bones
