HARP & GUITAR INTRO)
Well I sure take it with me wherever I go
And you might like to see it but it never does show
Like a wind in the valley that never does blow
Like the grass in the back you never did mow
It's a black sky formin' on the ridge
It's a woman waitin' standin' on the bridge
It's the price that you pay for walkin' on the ledge
It's everything you do and nothin' that you did
(HARP & GUITAR DITTY)

Well you might see me drivin' in the wrong side of town
And you might see me shinin' when the rain's comin' down
Like a diamond that's hidin' in the lost and found
Like a coon that's runnin' from a red bone hound
It's a black sky formin' on the ridge
It's a woman waitin' standin' on the bridge
It's the price that you pay for walkin' on the ledge
It's everything you do and nothin' that you did
(HARP & GUITAR SOLO)

Well the wood keeps burnin' in the old wood stove
And the cows keep goin' where they done been drove
And a light keeps glowin' in a dead man's cove
And a loom keeps spinnin' where the weave getsa wove
It's a black sky formin' on the ridge
It's a woman waitin' standin' on the bridge
It's the price that you pay for walkin' on the ledge
It's everything you do and nothin' that you did
