Lyrics:I've been walkin' in my sleep
Countin' troubles 'stead of countin' sheep
Where the years
went I can't say
I just turned around and they've gone away

I've been siftin'
through the layers
Of dusty books and faded papers
They tell a story I used to know

And it was one that happened so long ago

Chorus:
It's gone away in yesterday

Now I find myself on the moutainside
Where the rivers change direction
Across the Great
Divide

Now, I hear the owl a-callin'
Softly as the night was fallin'
With a
question and I replied
But he's gone across the borderline

Chorus

The
finest hour that I have seen
Is the one that comes between
The edge of night and the break
of day
It's when the darkness rolls away

Chorus Twice
