We came a long way darlin’
We took a good long time
But when you went to runnin’
You ran out all the line
There was no hurry
But you had to decide

And I have never wavered
I am a patient man
But you rode out a callin’
To prove that you still can
There’s still no hurry
But you’re ridin’ to decide

It’s your time – you say
Like you can ride on
It’s your time – I say
And I want you here
We came a long way darlin’
And I’m still here

Your August will come too late
Just like I tried to tell you darlin’
Your August will be too late
Suppose it’s a price you pay for runnin’
So long
Hope the loss will learn you well
That which joy alone would not
Your August will be too late
You now I’ll be gone when you come callin’
So long

As I slowly mount up
Beneath a blood moon sky
Recall your winter lips on my cup
But now it is July
No point to hurry
It’s my slow ride goodbye

It’s your time – you say
Turnin’ back’s bad luck
It’s your time – I say
Don’t you ask me why
We’re both ridin’ out now
Enjoy the ride
