Cowboy Junkies - My Father's House Lyrics

  • (bruce springsteen)
  • Last night I dreamed that I was a child
  • Out where the pines grow wild and tall
  • I was trying to make it home through the forest
  • Before the darkness falls
  • I heard the wind rustling through the trees
  • And ghostly voices rose from the fields
  • I ran with my heart pounding down that broken path
  • With the devil snappin at my heels
  • I broke through the trees and there in the night
  • My fathers house stood shining hard and bright
  • The branches and brambles tore my clothes and scratched my arms
  • But I ran till I fell, shaking in his arms
  • I awoke and I imagined the hard things that pulled us apart
  • Will never again, sir, tear us from each others hearts
  • I got dressed and to that house I did ride
  • From out on the road, I could see its windows shining in light
  • I walked up the steps and stood on the porch
  • A woman I didnt recognize came and spoke to me through a chained door
  • I told her my story and who Id come for
  • She said Im sorry, son, but no one by that name lives here anymore
  • My fathers house shines hard and bright
  • It stands like a beacon calling me in the night
  • Calling and calling, so cold and alone
  • Shining `cross this dark highway where our sins lie unatoned
