about

This is the song I wrote when I first fell in love with Montana.

lyrics

2. CONTINENTAL DIVIDE
Words and music copyright 2009 by Britt Arnesen

Once again the tide finds me
A character in my own song
I wrote down these words to remind me
Of everything that could go wrong

I tried to look for some polished glass
But this resort town's been beachcombed all clean
I tried to shake off this feeling
By writing this song to the geese

As if I could fly
Across the continental divide
I could drive
In 12 hours time
Be on the other side
Of the continental divide

It's a beautiful fall in Friday Harbor
But I'm driftwood stuck on the beach
High and dry and longing
For everything that's out of my reach

I left my heart in Montana
Some 700 miles from the sea
On horseback out there roams a mountain man
In the saddle he daydreams of me

To him I'll fly
Across the continental divide
Or maybe I'll drive
Be at his doorstep in 12 hours of time
So my sweetheart can hold me
While we watch the sunrise
'Cause there's a bigger sky
Out on his side
Of the continental divide

I'm going to fly
Across the continental divide
For just one more mountain man's kiss
You know I'd drive a hundred thousand miles
So my sweetheart can hold me
While we watch the sunrise
'Cause there's a bigger sky
Out on his side
It's a paradise
Out on his side
Of the continental divide
