I was young You were the one named Brother rufus I was gone When the wind blew You to dust. Over the hills We rose high above our mortal will. Over mountains crossed before you were lost.
Tierra, I found you 'neath the rattlesnake Upward I ascend (I think, I try) For my own sake. Believe me when I tell you That my heart is free What was that you said? When I scrape the earth In search of love, hold on until I am dead.
