Out where the creek turn shallow and sandy
And the moon comes skimmin' away the stars
When the mesquite comes rushin' over the hilltops
Straight into my arms, straight into my arms

I'm ridin' hard carryin' a cache of roses
A fresh map that I made
Tonight I'm gonna get birth naked and bury my old soul
And dance on it's grave, and dance on it's grave

It's been a long time comin', my dear
It's been a long time comin' but now it's here
And now it's here

Well my daddy he was just a stranger
Lived in a hotel downtown
Well when I was a kid he was just somebody
Somebody I'd see around, somebody I'd see around

Well now down below and pullin' on my shirt
Yeah I got some kids of my own
If I had one wish for you in this god forsaken world, kid
It'd be that your mistakes will be your own, that your sins will be your own

It's been a long time comin', my dear
It's been a long time comin' but now it's here
And now it's here

Out 'neath the arms of Cassiopeia
Where the sword of Orion sweeps
It's me and you, Rosie, cracklin' like crossed wires
And you breathin' in your sleep, and you breathin' in your sleep

Well there's just a spark of a campfire left burnin'
Two kids in a sleeping bag beside
Reach 'neath your shirt, put my hands across your belly and feel
Another one kickin' inside, and I ain't gonna fuck it up this time

It's been a long time comin', my dear
It's been a long time comin' but now it's here
It's been a long time comin', my dear
It's been a long time comin' but now it's here
