tonight i'll be sleepin on a mountain top
i got a billion stars for my witness
in the morning i go down and the sun comes up
and i take a drink from the bitterroot river

have you been lonely
yes i've been lonely
i've been lonely too

have you been lonely
yes i've been lonely
i've been lonely too

tonight i'll be sleepin on a mountain top
i got a billion stars for my witness
in the morning i go down and the sun comes up
i take a drink from the bitterroot river

have you been travelin'
yes i've been travelin'
i've been travelin' too

(that girl can play)

have you been travelin'
yes i've been travelin'
i've been travelin' too

(lordy help me (unknown))

tonight i'll be sleepin on a mountain top
i got a billion stars for my witness
in the morning i go down and the sun comes up
i take a drink from the bitterroot river
i take a drink from the bitterroot river
i take a drink from the bitterroot river

I always like the way the Indigo Girls play and harmonize, but I\'ve often thought they struggle too much with their lyrics. Nothing forced about this.

Agreed.
I can\'t stand the I.G. - but this song is pretty cool... Once again Bill finds something by a band I don\'t like that I\'ll listen to.
Hey, I pretty much like everything they\'ve done, this one is interesting. Sounds like they\'re jamming with the Grateful Dead ........ :)
while I agree that this is definitely one of the better IG efforts, it still leaves me indifferent. They just don\'t do it for me...they just seem to lack a certain energy, they just strike me as so \"white-bread\"
Different from some of the other IG stuff I\'ve heard. Nice playing. I like this one.
Gee, I was just saying how sick and tired I am of the IGs on the last song Bill played. I have to say I do like this one. It is quite different, and you are right gypsy, the harmonies are really nice. I like the guitar work as well.
Yet another terrific track from the new CD. Indigo Girls just keep surprising me, year after year.

Well, I was going to make a comment, but it seems that gypsy has it covered. :p ;)
