lyrics

I lost my way up on Platte Cove Road
Where the wind hits heavy and the mountain erodes
The natives knew this place so well
I must have fallen asleep and got caught in their spell

I lost my baby up on Platte Cove Road
In a town called Willow in a tiny abode
There's sunflowers on the windowsill
And a dog in the kitchen sitting still

I took your worry and I made it mine
I lost all sense of place and time
I woke up to the morning light

There's many dangers up on Platte Cove Road
There's hungry dwellers and big coyotes
River's running fast down the mountainside
And a sky full of rain that opens wide

I dug that ditch up on Platte Cove Road
As I ran home that night it snowed
The wind did howl, the branches swayed
Never thought I'd see the light of day

I took your worry and I made it mine
I lost all sense of place and time
I woke up to the morning light

The sun beams down on Platte Cove Road
Now dry earth where the rivers once flowed
I lift my head and raise my glass
To the one I left back in the past

Don't feel bad about Platte Cove Road
Sometimes a man's soul corrodes
Rust in the heart and dust in the mind
Some things you ought to just leave behind

I took your worry and I made it mine
I lost all sense of place and time
I woke up to the morning light

I lost my way up on Platte Cove Road
Where the wind hits heavy and the mountain erodes
The natives knew this place so well
I must have fallen asleep and got caught in their spell
