Emmylou Harris lyrics : "Prayer In Open D"

There's a valley of sorrow in my soul
Where every night I hear the thunder roll
Like the sound of a distant gun

Over all the damage I have done
And the shadows filling up this land
Are the ones I built with my own hand

There is no comfort from the cold
Of this valley of sorrow in my soul


There's a river of darkness in my blood
And through every vein I feel the flood
I can find no bridge for me to cross

No way to bring back what is lost
Into the night it soon will sweep
Down where all my grievances I keep

But it won't wash away the years
Or one single hard and bitter tear


And the rock of ages I have known
Is a weariness down in the bone
I use to ride it like a rolling stone

Now just carry it alone

There's a highway risin' from my dreams

Deep in the heart I know it gleams
For I have seen it stretching wide
Clear across to the other side

Beyond the river and the flood
And the valley where for so long I've stood
With the rock of ages in my bones

Someday I know it will lead me home
