The day is ending, you’re smiling thru
Tomorrow’s sending a struggle new;
The burden’s heavy, but if you bear,
We’ll find a haven, our love to share.
The years we’ve waited, we’ll soon forget,
Our hearts were mated since first we met;
The trail to Loveland, soon dear, we’ll find,
All care and sorrow we’ll leave behind.
Out where the sun bids the day a fond good-bye,
Our where the fields meet the crimson of the sky,
Out where all sorrow surrenders,
Out where the blue begins,
Dreams we once knew will return, and come true
Love that is strong must abide.
Blest in a nest in the West well find rest.
West of the Great Divide-vide.
