lyrics

We hollowed a hole through the Great Divide
in a Colorado town over near the Utah line.
Dug a tunnel with a shovel and some dynamite.
Then a few years later we landed in the paper when we reached the other side

It started as the dream of a millionaire.
He was a real estate king when he moved out there.
He built a railway line over that mountainside,
but when the ice got thick and the rail to slick, not a train could make the climb.

When there’s a mountain standing in the way,
you can face it or choose to walk away.
In that moment, you will find an answer waiting every time:
Just tunnel through on to the other side.

Every single dime spent before he died,
the time took to reach the other side.
Some would even say that both were just a waste,
but to others he forever changed their life.

When there’s a mountain standing in the way,
you can face it or choose to walk away.
In that moment, you will find an answer waiting every time:
Just tunnel through on to the other side.
