play Western Ridge (From Turning Point)

from Musical Medicine BUY

This is where the trail just disappears.

This is where their story ends.

No one knows where they went from here.

But I remember when they drank a toast.

A route that no one else had tried.



Chorus:Working up along the western ridge

Where the water shed divides.

Way out there

They found their

place in the sky.



Around the fire we told the tale

Of how they cut it close before.

Under logs left after the avalanche

They stumbled back to camp at dawn.

Now it's much too long to hold the hope.

The glacier ice can echo deep.

Thought I felt a tug along the rope

And it pulled me from my sleep.



Chorus:Working up along the western ridge

Where the water shed divides.

Way out there

They found their place in the sky.

Way out there

They found their place in the sky.



The air is clear and the ice is blue.

You can see from down below

That curling up over the eastern side

Is a silent plume of snow.



Chorus:

Working up along the western ridge

Where the water shed divides.

Way out there

They found their place in the sky.
