Lore Trail Of Tears
Credits: Noel Duggan
Appears On: Lore; Live In Concert
Language: English


The sunrise above them
As they make their way
In the early morning light
No backward glance
Frightened of tomorrow
On a lonely road
Shrouded in misted rain
The vanquished race

They felt the touch of loneliness
They felt the dread of fear
And found the path of wisdom
Along the trail of tears

So many ways of falling
A thousand barefoot tribes
Who trusted promises
No resting place
March into the wilderness
Time their fate decides
Leaving behind them
Treasures and gold


The sun sets before them
In another land
Withered in spirit
The struggle ends

(Chorus 2x)
