Walk Away

By: Charlie Mills

Don't want to plant Black Spruce
In Canadian Shield
Are they Surprised to see you back
A second time north, Big Nickel

Now the wheels start to roll
Out to the woods where you been before
And the pride starts to rise
And the anger and the temper boil

Now the dogs are too late
on your trail
Night keeps setting on the
Forest trail

70 Clicks through the backland
70 Clicks with no map, plan
70 Clicks through the sticks
Why would you walk away?

Did you wait by the side of the road
Sun slow sinking and
approaching cold
Did you walk, hitch a ride,
Make a move for the nearest phone?

Step out when they call your name?
In the headlights glow
Do you think You're saved?
Did punches start to fly?
Did you fall in the forest that night?

Were there wolves in the moonlight?
Passport and wallet at the campsite.

70 Clicks through the backland
70 Clicks with no map, plan
70 Clicks through the sticks
Why would you walk away?

Many crews have come along
father's memory fades
Till the hope is gone.
The White River rolls
To the Dig, Stomp, Step, Move On

Authorities don't have much t'say
Just let the Jack Pine Needles lay where they lay.
And they can cover any secrets
That may lie on the forest floor

70 Clicks through the backland
70 Clicks for a black man
70 Clicks through the sticks
Why would you walk away?
