She came up from the country with a smile for everyone
	she left her blue horizon just to find another home
	a lonely girl who'd travelled many days
	a lonely heart that could not find a way

		and she said Momma, it's a hard life now you're gone
		Momma, it's so hard to carry on
		and I feel I'm a fool who lost it all
		you used to make it all so very clear
		that life must go on though the end is near
		oh Momma, it's a sad and lonely life

	A misty morning rider she came wandering through the hills
	a wanderin soul appearin over rainy window sills
	a loser in her heart, but in her face
	a smile for everyone under God's grace

	Midnight maiden madness, what to search for in this place
	gateway to the city, night sky shadows on her face
	a lady lost in nowhere but her stare
	leaves the world, her life to start somewhere
