Yukon River

It’s one in the morning
There’s a full moon rising, spilling gold out on the bay
And I’m driving faster, past Treasure Island
Home is just another mile away
I love this city, my hillside beauty
With it’s golden gate and it’s backstreet grime
But I left my heart in a mountain valley
By a rolling river at the edge of time

I found my way on that Yukon river
Alone beneath the northern sky a thousand miles from home
Winding my way on that Yukon river
Cradled in the sweetest arms that I have ever known

On an autumn morning
In a meadow of diamonds, crystal lace in the golden grass
By a rambling river, I lay down in the silver
On a bed of lichen where the caribou pass
And all my heartache, the promises that always break
The loneliness that never seems to leave
And the world’s hard times, that weigh so heavy on my mind
just disappeared in that mountain breeze

I found my way on that Yukon river
Alone beneath the northern sky a thousand miles from home
Winding my way on that Yukon river
Cradled in the sweetest arms that I have ever known

I had forgotten the music of the mountains
and the smell when sunlight hits the pine
I had been lost in the things I thought I needed
that only hypnotize my mind

I found my way on that Yukon river
Alone beneath the northern sky a thousand miles from home
Winding my way on that Yukon river
Cradled in the sweetest arms that I have ever known

I found my way on that Yukon river
Alone beneath the northern sky a thousand miles from home
Winding my way on that Yukon river
Cradled in the sweetest arms that I have ever known
