Drive By Truckers
Brighter Than Creation's Dark
The Monument Valley
Its all about where you put the horizon
Said the Great John Ford to the young man rising
You got to frame it just right and have some luck of course
And it helps to have a tall man sitting on the horse
Tell them just enough to still leave them some mystery
A grasp of the ironic nature of history
A man turns his back on the comforts of home
The Monument Valley to ride off alone

And when the dust all settles and the story is told
History is made by the side of the road
By the men and women that can persevere
And rage through the storm, no matter how severe
And whether its a horse or a car or a train
Theres gonna be some fine times and theres gonna be some pain
In the end its a silhouette framed by the sun
And just The Monument Valley when the evening comes

Its a strong wind blowing on the open range
Its gonna be beautiful and its gonna be strange
Its where to plant the camera and when to say action
When to print the legend and when to leave the facts in
And when to turn your back on the comforts of home
And wander round The Monument Valley alone

Songwriters
JOHN COOLEY, JOHN NEFF, PATTERSON HOOD, SHONNA TUCKER, BRAD MORGAN
