about

Written while running desolate roads in the American west, where long distance night driving from one show to the next is the norm. Join us as we head out on the long, black ribbon.

lyrics

It’s a long way to El Paso from this East Texas town
A long way to go before I lay my body down
It’s a long way to Las Cruces for a lonely vagabond
The Long Black Ribbon stretches on

The Long Black Ribbon
Taking me away and back again
The Long Black Ribbon
A companion and a long lost friend
Through the mountains and the rivers
And the big city centers
The Long Black Ribbon stretches on

Time passes slowly as the landscape runs away
To the silence of the suns golden rays
Darkness creeps around us we’ll be driving ‘til the dawn
The Long Black Ribbon stretches on
