A MYSTERY OF THE ROAD

It's was a cold winter night - the moon hid its light,
and a strange song was riding the wind.
Maria and Juan were wandering on,
down the road that rolls without end.

Not a peso to show, and no place to go,
where they had family or friend.
Like a mystical cover, a cloud seemed to hover,
over the road that rolls without end.

Chorus
A coyote's cry reached up to the sky,
like a prayer in a plea to the wind.
Maria and Juan found a hollow nearby,
where they slept till the morning again.
Two faithful lovers,'neath a cloud that hovered,
on the road that rolls without end.

As the sun was rising,they saw something surprising.
They felt hope beginning again.
A fresh water stream flowed like a dream,
by the side of the road that rolls without end.

The cloud up above, was shining like love.
They felt a soft sprinkle begin.
A horseman appeared with a greeting of cheer,
on the road that rolls without end.

Chorus
It must have been a mirage, or sand camouflage,
when a soft light began to descend,
they were standing there proud,in the midst of the cloud,
then disappeared in a whisper of wind.
No-one was there, to remember just where
was the place on the road that rolls without end.
