Reba Mcentire – The Great Divide lyrics

(michael P. Heeney, jackson leap)

Well I could swear
This king size bed
Keeps getting wider
And I could swear
A strangers laying by my side
And I can swear a long dark valley lies between us
And there aint no way to cross the great divide

The great divide
Aint in colorado
Its the distance that weve somehow grown apart
The great divide
Oh that rivers sorrow
We can't rebuild
The bridge we burned
Between our hearts

And lord knows we both tried hard
At crossing rivers
But pride runs as deep
As it is wide
And the love that once could conquer any mountain
Has reached the edge of the great divide

Repeat chorus

The great divide
Aint in colorado
