The rain kept pouring down
Upon our heads and ground
No one sees us
No one hears a thing we say
On this cold and dark highway

‘Twas you that brought us here
And we ain’t got no beer
Don’t blame me man
Don’t quit sticking out your thumb
Headlights pass as I go numb

The hours turn into years
And through the rain and tears
What’s that rising?
What’s on top of that hillside?
Beyond this ditch where some deer died

So up that hill we go
We fall on mud and snow
Keep on climbing
Keep on moving toward the glade
To a place where dreams are made     

High in the winter air
We’ll put the tent up there
Shine that light man
Shine it on these knots I tie
In the glen where sleep is nigh

Like mice in sacks of grain
Escape the driving rain
Night is dying  
Night has all but passed away
Let’s head to that bright highway
