This Old Heart of Mine
Across the green valley the sky is on fire
Out on a highway beneath the telephone wires
In the red light of evening the dark road it shines
It's always been a traveler, this old heart of mine
This old heart is weathered, this old heart is worn
This gallant ship has seen many a storm
There's always a reason, there's always a rhyme
There's always a child in this old heart of mine
I've seen the sweet times, the hope and the pain
I've seen the soft morning, the wind and the rain
Into the darkness our light it must shine
There's always a shadow in this old heart of mine
This old heart of mine it's so full of memories
Its cup runneth over, it's fruit on the vine
Till the day it stops beating, till I've run out of time
It'll never stop loving, this old heart of mine
