There's a house somewhere i know where's the fire's burn all night long
There's a swing outside on the porch where i feel i could rock away the dusk until the dawn
And even though the wind may be howlin'
Stars are bright and they push me on and on
There's a half moon risin' in the south eastern skies
There's a cold wind blowing across the great divide
And the stars they guide my way across the night
There's a half moon rising, pushin' me on to another mountain top
Push me on, no i'll never stop, push me on home
There's a half moon rising in the south eastern skies tonight now the shoes on my feet, those soles broken down and my coat is tattered and worn
And the hunger in my belly, and the fever in my head will vanish 'ere my first glimpse of home
And even though the rain may now be fallin'
The passion is deep and pushes me on
There's a still at dawn like the sound of your loves breath as she lies sleeping
Down below me now in the valley is the only piece on earth that i ever want to know
And her lips are as soft as i remember
She alone has brought me back on home
