  1. Rough Edges

From the recording Sound Tracks

A thought to the incredible trials of Ohio's early settlers.
Bill Lestock on all instruments, besides my guitar.

Lyrics

Rough Edges
Like the river that cuts
The cold stone away
That lies neath this thin rocky ground
Your love pours over me day after day
It’s worn all my rough edges down
It’s worn all my rough edges down

I was a hard hearted man,
Who once worked this land.
Who toiled each day of the year
Now I feel broken down
There is no hope any how
What I would give just to have you back here.
What would I give just to have you back here
For twenty long years we labored away
For what reasons now I just don’t know
It’s still clear today when I heard you say
Darlin, I just have to go
I didn’t know you were desperate to go

So I head to the pines
When you’re heavy on my mind
And I sit there and talk until dawn
When there is nothing to say
Then I make my way
Through the morning light
I stumble back home
In the morning I find my way home.
The water runs deep in this little spring creek
At the plunge pool at Chair Factory Falls
When you stepped in that day
And floated away
What you left here doesn’t matter at all
What’s left it don’t matter at all

Like the river that cuts
The cold stone away
That lies neath this thin rocky ground
Your memory pours over me day after day
And it’s worn all my rough edges down
It’s worn all my rough edges down
