With downcast eyes the multitudes set
As the cattle cars pulled along the rusty tracks
One raised his hand in the fading light
Said excuse me sir this doesn't seem right

And now he's gone like whispers gone like rain
Gone like the faithful while the faithless remain
Gone like the stone the builder refused
Gone and overdue

There's a river in Texas with a strong undertow
No one crosses it to freedom, no one pans for gold
It's waters are clear but it's waters are cold
It's current is swift and no one knows where it goes

It's just gone like whispers gone like rain
Gone like the faithful while the faithless remain
Gone like the stone the builder refused
Gone and overdue
Gone and overdue

When a cool desert don't appear on no map
Coyote's scream rips the night in half
He hears the devil coming
Footsteps on the path
So he chews off his own leg to get out of the trap

And he's gone like whispers gone like rain
Gone like the faithful while the faithless remain
Gone like the stone the builder refused
Gone and overdue
Gone and overdue
