"Long Winter" by: Walter Rose

Nevada City north to Callahan
Steering wheel fills the hands of a working man
Coeur D'alene floods the frame of my rearview mirror
Thirty days of rain the sun just won’t shine
She gonna heal your wounds with the hands of time

And I know she gonna see you through it all
And I know it’s gonna be a Long Winter

Half a child he’s half a man
With a badge on his chest and a gun in his hand
There’s no shame to your card game with the devil’s dealer boy
Ten years of the same can she leave it all behind
Rollin in the rough far too long now darlin' it’s time you let it shine

And I know we all built to fall
And I know it’s gonna be a Long Winter
