Words and music by Graham Nash
© 1975 Thin Ice Music (Ascap)

Saw a sign on the highway
I was driving along, way home
On a hilltop is where I belong
I took a look at the hole
Where my head used to be
And I'll sing you a song
That descended on me

The way I live
Determines the way
My people survive
Yes the way I live
Determines the way
My people survive

So I went to the country
To look up a friend
Cause I heard that the house
And the barn had a blend
I took a look at the hole
Where the bird used to be
And I'll sing him a song
Because he sang one for me

The way I live
Determines the way
My people survive
Yes the way I live
Determines the way
My people survive

And the names of the cowboys
Will all blow away
Like the dust off the desert
On a hot windy day
I've tried so hard to tell you
In so many ways
That I'm scared of the heartache and scenes
With the cowboy of dreams
