Rusty Chains

Through long shadows of a late afternoon,

old wood houses, faded brick stores

and one tall steeple with the sign of the cross

and the rusty chains of October days

stretching out before me through the haze.

From a window a warm yellow light

looks out on the falling twilight,

falls across the road as I'm going by,

and the rusty chains of October days

stretching out before me through the haze.

Scarecrows wave and the jack-o-lanterns smile.

Oh, I sure would like to stop and talk a while,

but I've got to chase the wind for a few more miles.

Feel a chill in the autumn breeze

with the thought that stirs the red leaves --

to stand this wind you've got to set your roots deep

and the rusty chains of October days

stretching out before me through the haze.
