lyrics

From dawn until dusk
this trail is a must
for our journey is long to endure
it's cold and it's wet
blood stains and brow sweat
but still we keep soldiering on

To settle out west the prairie winds bested us all
the shadow of the mountains off in the distance gives us shivers
Past the great Chisholm Trail, we drank our last ale
For now there's no turning back.

I will fight til I die, til the end will I try
for the sake of our minds and our own
I will fight til I die, til the end will I try
for the sake of our minds and our own

The wind on my cheek
and hoof sounds as they beat on the ground
Overtaken, we were in a bound,
for once in my life, out of fear and of strife
did I gallop away from the pack?

I will fight til I die, til the end will I try
for the sake of our minds and our own
I will fight til I die, til the end will I try
for the sake of our minds and our own

A great flood would halt our dreams, as our lives had filled at the seams and as we stitched ourselves along that ornamented stream. And as we sailed away, my eyes naked and frayed drank in the twinkling of lights from above.

Backwater Opera Denton, Texas

"Backwater Opera [is] a group that stitches the sound of bluegrass music into a classical indie-rock tapestry. It's an aesthetic the band [has called] 'Chambergrass'...With songs ranging from sorrowful to blisteringly introspective, and vocal harmonies sweet enough to melt even the harshest capital pacific northwest ice, this band is one to keep in mind and on the playlist." -Eugene Weekly ... more
