We made tracks for the Great Highway
In the night the storm had calmed
Obscurely, they just stood by
Not a trace was left there now
No single sign to show they'd ever been
Disappeared like a breath of wind
Wrung my hands in a silent cry
You held my head, I couldn't speak
In that place called the Great Highway
Light above us the earth beneath

Chorus:

Sister
I'm fainting in the storm
Hold me fast
While the horseman pass
Sister, I feel their burning hearts
Carry me away

Took them down to the Great Highway
In a night that was raging fast
Questioned, as others lied
Destined to be the last
Their thoughts scattered to the wind
The blood of a thousand tribes
We had promised to be steadfast
To the things that they believed in
In that place called the Great Highway
Not a word we could ever say

Repeat chorus

Instrumental

Repeat chorus twice

Solitude
Of the lonely hunter
On the Great Highway
In the light
Voices of the silenced
On the Great Highway
