A piano-driven horse ride through the mountains of Vermont and New Hampshire, a story of youthful courtship and elopement.

lyrics

Thomas' Horse

Twilight, I’m riding down on Thomas’ horse
Across the ridge, down through the green of the darkening trees
After work I wash my face in the cold well water
My father’s shirt, my favorite belt, then I leave the farm behind

I know she waits for me in the lamp light shadow
She left her family’s house to meet me there
All I am and all I’ll be is always for her
Tonight we ride to find the world beyond

I’ve never seen the sea, I’ve never seen the sea

Twilight, I’m riding down on Thomas’ horse
Across the ridge, down through the green of the darkening trees
Everything I’ve ever known is all these mountains
Everything is opening and she is by my side

I’ve never seen the sea, I’ve never seen the sea
