From The Heart Of Me Lyrics: Donna Godchaux Music: Donna Godchaux Copyright Ice Nine Publishing; used by permission. Voices slide down off the mountain Sunlight turning red Falls on the earth and it spreads Even the families lower their head As they ride Age old faces of the mountains Looming naturally I wonder if they're looking at me Their monumental eyes I can feel And the glow in the twilight The dawn of hope Reminds me Now I'm reaching out to you Anything I can do To be safe and warm In your arms All I have is the heart of you I'd meet you anywhere in the country Or anywhere on the sea All over the world it could be I would follow you With the heart of me Love calls echo in the valley Dream come true tonight Remembering you hold me tight In tomorrow morning's light I will find you When I awoke the stars were out And shining, shining for you and me All I ever want to be Safe and warm In your arms All I have from the heart of me

Just had a note from Alan Trist, who talked with Donna Jean at the Oregon Country Fair recently. She says that the first line of this song is suppoed to be "Horses slide down off the mountain". I'll try to get it fixed in the paperback edition of the Complete Annotated Grateful Dead Lyrics. Whew!

Does make a little more sense of the line "Even the families lower their heads as they ride."

Fascinating - I'll update my site too. I thought "Voices slide down off the mountain" paired well with "Love calls echo in the valley."

Interesting how both versions work with the lines that follow.
