Fenceline lyrics

Alone in the dark at the edge of the board
A coyote call at the moon in the sky
The bright shiny night and a circling vulture
and the wholes in the old fenceline
I'm traveling far from the land of my father
The red cactus flower in the wait of a crime
The far away barking of the dogs by the water
and the whole sin the old fenceline

Oooh ooooh
Angels look away,
Unbar the pearly gate
Unblock the road
'Cause down here at the border the dogs are getting close
And all of my dreaming, a house by a river
A small bit of land for my beautiful wife
Something to show for a lifetime of labour
and wholes in the old fenceline

And I crawl in the dirt to the edge of the country
My memory hurting and the dust in my eyes
I trade in the night for the last of my money
and the wholes in the old fenceline

And oooooh
Angels look away
Unbar the pearly gate
Unblock the road
'Cause down here at the border,
down here at the border
I'm just an animal.
