  1. Wyoming

Lyrics

Out here the sky runs on forever, clear to the shadow of the plains
Where the painted sage, it gathers the snow from the Saratoga Range
Clouds wander down Elk Mountain drift south in the November wind
Like birds lost before winter lost just to be found again

With purple rust and dusted rooftops, the truckers just roll on by
They don't see her living or breathing, they don't see her smile
She looks to me with open arms and I wonder where I've been
Blankets me in all her charms and I’m free again

Oh how she calls to me, this lover wild and new
A daring untamed beauty, immortal in her youth
All spread out wide before me
Wyoming lies between me and you

Up all night with her whispered words, secrets shared with no man
So I show her my scars and tell her what hurts ‘til I'm lost drifting across her land
Where the snow fences of Sweetwater County stand in cold salute
Asking nothing of me they see everything but you

Oh how she calls to me, this lover wild and new
A daring untamed beauty, immortal in her youth
Waking soft beside me
Wyoming lies between me and you

Ice melting slow on the shoulder, I see your eyes in the sun
But come tonight it'll get much colder with this ride only half done
I'll make Cheyenne by dark, gonna leave her a tender kiss
Because she bares her naked heart pleading with my restlessness

Oh how she calls to me, this lover wild and new
A daring untamed beauty, immortal in her youth
Promising the world to me but
Wyoming lies between me and you
Promising the world to me
Wyoming lies between me and you
