Song Description

I was plunking on the guitar riff one night and it suggested something "western" and barren. At first the song was going to be about a woman left alone on a homestead while her husband went to fight in the civil war or something, but then it sort of evol

Story Behind the Song

The tune is supposed to take place in the mid 1800s. God knows where it came from - a bit before my time.

Lyrics

Sun Beat Down

The wagon wheels were creakin? through hard grass
And the sky was stitched in wide and deep blue seams
In this dusty prairie land we toiled with tears and leathered hands
And the sun beat down upon our dreams

We finally found the valley and the stream
And built our house among the knotty trees
And we heard there not a sound except the wind across the ground
And the sun beat down upon our dreams


The first-born girl she came on a winter?s night
And the second born he came and took my wife
They played down by the water and I prayed for the daughter
Of the man who gave his only girl to me

Interlude

Ten years since then have come and gone
And the three of us have worked this land alone
In the field there?s a stone and in the light her name is shown
By the sun that beat down upon our dreams
By the sun that beat down upon our dreams.

Sun that beat down upon
Sun that beat down upon
Sun that beat down upon our dreams
