If I Should Fail


Written by Tom Pacheco and Rick Danko
Album: Jubilation
The lyrics are copyrighted. Please do not copy or redistribute.


I'm trapped on this mountain
Two more hours 'til dawn
If they should come in the morning
I'll have both guns drawn
I looked down the canyon
I can see their fires
All of my companions
Captured or expired

And if I should fail
On this fearful trail
Surrounded and alone and still pursued
If I don't prevail
If you get this mail
Know the last thing that
I think of will be you

I've seen storms erasing
Every dream I knew
But this danger I'm facing
Is the worst I've gone through
Your picture before me
Laying on a stone
The one where you're smiling
Holding one red rose

And if I should fail
On this fearful trail
Surrounded and alone and still pursued
If I don't prevail
If you get this mail
Know the last thing that
I think of will be you

If they come with the rising sun
I will know by the hush of the birds
And the snapping of the twigs
As they move in
Got a canteen full of rum
If the worst occurs
I will drink it dry
Before the end begins
