Lyrics

Hiking the Schoolhouse Trail Avoiding the poison oak and the bees I followed my maps and my compass And studied the shapes of the old pine trees I cut a path to the pond Surrounded by cattails, reeds and grass And there you stood eating sunflower seeds From your Padre’s cap It’s a wide open sky I’m riding the breeze with the leaves and the dragonflies You showed me the way down to Iron Springs Where the water runs rusty red We were trespassing on the old man’s land Ignoring the signs up ahead You told me stories bout wild cats And being lost when the sun goes down I lay in the grass and watch the heavens spin round It’s a wide open sky I’m riding the breeze with the leaves and the dragonflies We found the old schoolhouse Leaning like it wanted to fall We held our breaths and tiptoed A whisper could have ended it all We flew out over the canyon Riding a tire on a 30 foot swing Gathered up ferns and wildflowers And tried to remember our dreams It’s a wide open sky I’m riding the breeze with the leaves and the dragonflies
