lyrics

If I was a crow and you were a canyon
I'd drink from your rivers and I'd swim through your air
I'd built up my nest where the roots that there hold you
My feathers cold black would find life in your care

And the mountains would ponder love laid below them
And the rivers would wonder to the ocean again
If I was a crow and you were a canyon
I'd still have to leave you, my first love's the wind

If I's a new rider, and you a starry eyed sorrel
I'd give my last dollar to ride you away
We'd run to Montana through the clover and laurel
Where the hills are pillows for dream heads to lay

And the wind would blow, cold wind on the mountain
And the robins would fly south the same in the sun
I'd follow those robins on the tunes that they'd offer
And cry for the sorrel, for her day is done

But when I cross over don't you buy me no tombstone
Don't lay my bones in a grave so cold
Just let the wind take me up where it's high and it's shining
'Cause the end I need will be new in the day

And the mountains would ponder love laid below them
And the rivers would wonder to the ocean again
If I was a crow and you were a canyon
I'd still have to leave you, my first love's the wind

If I was a crow and you were a canyon
I'd still have to leave you, my first love's the wind
