All is well, I've made my peace where highways never end
Yesterday's a memory, today is just a friend
For the mountains and Maryann are calling me again
And the red pines will bow their heads
The rivers and the watersheds will swallow up my tears, all is well

I left the cold mid western towns behind
There's a semi up the road ahead, I'll take him in my time
For the hot-blooded mountain love is calling me again
And the vagabond within me cries, the wind and rain might burn my eyes
But I won't feel the pain for the mountains and Maryann
Will greet me there as only she can do

All is well, as I swing up to the border bent for hell
And the service station man agreed I didn't look too well
But the mountains and Maryann are calling out to me
And I got my bed roll on my back, and everything that I could pack
To see me on my way, all is well

I've made my peace and man I'm feeling fine
And the losers that I left behind, I'll think about some other time
For the border men were all my friends they couldn't find a dime
And the prairie towns go sailing by
Saskatchewan there's mud in your eye, I'm leaving you behind

There'll be hot blooded mountain love to satisfy my soul
And the red pines will bow their heads, the rivers and the watersheds
Will carry us along and the mountains and Maryann
Will greet me there as only she can do

All is well, the foothills are coming into sight
Today is just a memory, the future is tonight
And the red pines will bow their heads, the rivers and the watersheds
Will carry us along and the mountains and Maryann
Will greet me there as only she can do
