I was breaking rocks on the Powder River banks I ain't killed nobody I ain't robbed no banks And as I dug in the Red River dirt I rolled in the loam and the mud and the hurt. And I looked through your window But you weren't there I tapped on your door I rang your phone. I rocked in your chair. That Red River valley floods each spring I'm awaiting for that deluge to wash away my sins. Ill keep breaking rocks till my hands bleed Feed that greedy old river bed I'll sow that seed. And I looked through your window But you weren't there I tapped on your door I rang your phone. I rocked in your chair. Bring me a ten pound hammer And a three foot stake: I ain't no burden And I ain't no mistake I'm walking those tracks Treading that line I ain't got no future but I feel fine And I tapped on your window But you weren't home I knocked on your door I rang your phone. You'll find me in those caves Where the Big Sky fades Past the lakes and the trees And those honied days In the slow drum of memory In the blink of an eye In a love so strong I didn't think it could die. And I tapped on your window But you weren't there. I tore my shirt I pulled at my hair. If these old mountains could talk, spit out their stones Calling "Death to Dominion! It's the end of the road!" Their carrion call would wring blood from the rocks The daughter's of despair would shake and stop dead in their tracks Cause you were breaking rocks on the Powder River bank You ain't killed nobody Ain't robbed no banks And as you dug in the Red River Dust You rolled in loam and the dust And were lost.
