The smog that lurks just beyond the sign
The love and the land that we're leavin behind
The border line.
The Elko town casinos
The Elko town bars
The rearview mirror scene of ours.
The horses, the hats, the cowboys and ropes
They stand behind us with bowed heads and our hopes.
Mountains and white lines
Sagebrush and speed limit signs.
With dreary hearts and lingering souls we drift on out of old Elko.
Coffee still on our breathe
And like a traitor to my own heart
I find us driftin farther apart.
A haunting feelin dances in the air
And it just don't seem quite fair.
So with Nevada in our hearts
And Utah on our minds
We'll be wherever our road finds
Forever haunted by these border signs.
