This song appears on three albums, and was first released on The Flower That Shattered The Stone album, and has also been released on the Stonehaven Sunrise and The John Denver Collection - Take Me Home Country Roads albums.

High, Wide and Handsome
Down from the great white north
More than enough and then some
Swept her up on his own

Tumbleweeds were meant to
Get stuck up on a fence
Heaven must have sent you
You've got no wire to roll against

Keep her steady cowgirl
Don't let go of the reigns
You are ready now girl
Never mind the growin' pains

Worlds out there are waiting
Big and wild as the sky
No more hesitating
It's now or never, do or die

Keep her steady cowgirl
Don't let go of the reigns
You are ready now girl
Never mind the growin' pains

As hard as you imagined
It being without me
We'll both be wishing it were that easy
Don't give me a pull, give me some room
When this round up is through, I'll be coming back home

Wide open spaces
Between these two prairie hearts
Wonderin' where their place is
In a world so far apart

Keep her steady cowgirl
Don't let go of the reigns
You are ready now girl
Never mind the growin' pains

Keep her steady cowgirl
Don't let go of the reigns
You are ready now girl
Never mind the growin' pains
