  • The song is over
    It's all behind me
    I should have known it
    She tried to find me

    Our love is over
    They're all ahead now
    I've got to learn it
    I'm gonna to sing out

    I'll sing my song to the wide open spaces
    I'll sing my heart out to the infinite sea
    I'll sing my visions to the sky high mountains
    I'll sing my song to the free, to the free
    I'll sing my song to the wide open spaces
    I'll sing my heart out to the infinite sea
    I'll sing my visions to the sky high mountains
    I'll sing my song to the free, to the free

    When I walked in through the door
    Thought it was me I was looking for
    She was the first song I ever sang
    But it stopped as soon as it began

    Our love is over
    It's all behind me
    They're all ahead now
    Can't hope to find me

    I'll sing my song to the wide open spaces
    I'll sing my heart out to the infinite sea
    I'll sing my visions to the sky high mountains
    I'll sing my song to the free, to the free
    I'll sing my song to the wide open spaces
    I'll sing my heart out to the infinite sea
    I'll sing my visions to the sky high mountains
    I'll sing my song to the free, to the free

    This song is over
    I'm left with only tears
    I must remember
    Even if it takes a million years

    The song is over
    The song is over

  • Retrogrouch from OceansideJacko hard to compare Bonham and Moon, totally different drummers, there is an interesting story about Moon jamming with Zepplin before Bonham joined and Townsend found out about it and threatened Moon with bodily harm if he left the Who.
  • Tony from Delran, NjThe best of the "B" songs ever recorded by The Who!! Keith Moon is absolutely fantastic!!
  • Gerard from Ronkonkoma, NyI agree Jacko. Great observation. Spectacular drumming!
  • Jacko from London, EnglandThis song has one of the best drum lines ever from probably the best drummers in the history of rock.Keith Moon/John Bonham - hard to separate them,absolute classic.
  • Guy from Woodinville, WaThis is one of Pete's pure, classic, perfect, timeless songs from the Tommy/Lifehouse period.
