Original Tale: Heaven Bound

If I steal away on horseback when the day has just begun
I can ride into heaven on the rays of the sun
Only hoofbeats and eagles dare to make any sound
I can race across the plains because today I'm heaven bound

The ground is red and purple and the dew like diamond strands
The vastness all around me calls my heart across the land
Here is where I know that heav'n and earth must surely meet
Where the sky and ground are blended well beneath my horse's feet
