I never had a crystal ball
I never had a crystal stone
I never claimed to know it all
All I know is what I've known
And I know that what we've had
I had never had before
And if you really have to go
Be of good heart evermore

I hear the wild dogs in the dark
I hear the wind out in the pines
But there's no travel near or far
Without the crossing of my mind
Still the reflection of your eyes
Shows a road stretched out before
And if you really have to go
Be of good heart evermore

I don't know nothing bout where you're goin'
That don't mean a thing to me
You have secrets I don't know
And I have scars that you can't read
I know your past ain't far behind
I hear it knocking on the door, and
And if you really have to go
Be of good heart evermore

And I know that I just may
Have been a way to pass your time
Just a stop along your way
As you were a stop on mine
But even so it'd still be worth
All the loneliness in store
And if you really gotta go
Be of good heart evermore

Be of good heart evermore
