  • I drew the shades down and locked the door
    The telephone rang, I didn't want to know why
    On a wind-blown mountain road
    I'm driving alone, under the darkening sky

    Until only an hour ago
    Had a head full of grave concern
    It was only an hour ago
    I'm gonna leave it all alone
    For when and if I do return
    I've got this road all to myself

    For on and on as far as my eyes can see
    With ten kinds of misery, in back of me
    Right where I want it to be
    Until only an hour ago
    Those four walls were closing in tight

    It was only an hour ago
    I'm not many miles away
    But I'm feeling more like "right"
    I see the lights of another town
    Down around the other side of the hill

    But I don't feel like slowin' down
    When tomorrow comes
    I might be movin' still
    This is where I wanna be for awhile

    In not much time at all
    I know I'll be able to smile
    Until only an hour ago
    Those four walls were closing in tight

    It was only an hour ago
    I'm not many miles away
    But I'm feeling more like "right"

    I had to go
    It was just time
    Too many mean things on my mind
    I see the lights of another town
    Down around the other side of the hill

    But I don't feel like slowin' down
    When tomorrow comes
    I might be movin' still
    This is where I wanna be for awhile

    In not much time at all
    I know I'll be able to smile
    Until only an hour ago
    Had a head full of grave concern

    It was only an hour ago
    I'm gonna leave it all alone
    For when and if I do return
    (Only an hour ago)
