Timberline 03:15
"Timberline" By Mark Mitten (c) 2019 From the album: Timberline, Best of Mark Mitten 2010-2020 Like a desert wind cuts through your skin Like the wrath of God, what is your sin? Like a bourbon shot pours Like a friend who wanted more Cross the timberline Onward to the war Of your ways / of your eyes The way you walk You cut me down to size Like an empty grave put in your dead Like the Word of God tastes just like bread Like a melting glacier cold Like the devil wants you sold Cross the timberline Onward to the war All your ways / of your eyes The way you walk You cut me down to size All your games / all your lies The way you talk It cut me down to size

Monsoon Rains By Mark Mitten (c) 2018 From the album: Monsoon Rains Trailer full of pack mules Drop that old Ford into low Nothing in the rearview But a wall of square bale hay Found myself again In the monsoon rains on Red Mountain Pass Coffee in Durango Gonna race the Narrow Gauge Million Dollar Highway? Well my truck cost a thousand dimes Found myself again In the monsoon rains on Red Mountain Pass Road crews fixing guardrail But then they always do (what’s new?) Brewery in Ouray Only thing been on my mind Found myself again In the monsoon rains on Red Mountain Pass Found myself again Lost myself again in the rain
