All is well
I've made my peace where highways never end
Yesterday's a memory today is just a friend
For the mountains and Marian are calling me again
And the red pines will bow their heads
The rivers and the watersheds will swallow up my tears

All is well
I left the cold mid-western towns behind
There's a semi up the road ahead I'll take him in my time
For the hot-blooded mountain love is calling me again
And the vagabond within me cries
The wind and rain might burn my eyes but I won't feel the pain
For the mountains and Marian will greet me there as only she can do

All is well
As I swing up to the border bent for hell
And the service station man agreed I didn't look too well
But the mountains and Marian are calling out to me
And I got my bedroll on my back
And everything that I could pack to see me on my way

All is well
I've made my peace and man, I'm feelin' fine
And the losers that I left behind I'll think about some other time
For the border men were all my friends they couldn't find a dime
And the prairie towns go sailing by
Saskatchewan there's mud in your eye I'm leavin' you behind
There'll be hot-blooded mountain love to satisfy my soul
And the red pines will bow their heads
The rivers and the watersheds will carry us along
And the mountains and Marian will greet me there as only she can do

All is well
The foothills are coming into sight
Today is just a memory the future is tonight
And the red pines will bow their heads
The rivers and the watersheds will carry us along
And the mountains and Marian will greet me there as only she can do
