lyrics

Well, it's dry and it's dusty
The wind tends to howl
Drinking water is a half mile away
There's coyotes and badgers
Gophers and snakes
But this is home
This is where we will stay.
We left north Dakota
About three months ago
Headed north
The family in tow.
A couple cows and some chickens
A few pots and pans


Pretty near all that we own.
We been making good time,
About five miles a day
Ain't busted a wheel in some time.
Wake up at daybreak
And look to the north
Where there's always
A new hill to climb.


Well, it's dry and it's dusty
The wind tends to howl
Drinking water is a half mile away
There's coyotes and badgers
Gophers and snakes
But this is home
This is where we will stay.
The kid's getting cranky,
The wife's getting tired,
All this nothin
Is getting me down.
Been living on beans
And weevily flour.
It's been weeks
Since we last saw a town.
All this empty expanse
is driving me mad.
Gives a man
Too much time to think
The pressure inside
Is beginning rise. /Is getting intense
Start to feel
Like I mighy need
A drink.


Well, it's dry and it's dusty
The wind tends to howl
Drinking water is a half mile away
There's coyotes and badgers
Gophers and snakes
But this is home
This is where we will stay.
we've been traveling too long
i get mighty tired
Rolling smokes
Out of yesterday's butts.
we ought to keep moving
with Eyes on the prize
But this thing
Take more patience than guts.
the next piece of land
That's up for grabs
Is where we'll be staking our claim.
over the next hill
This is home
And it's where we'll remain.


Well, it's dry and it's dusty
The wind tends to howl
Drinking water is a half mile away
There's coyotes and badgers
Gophers and snakes
But this is home
This is where we will stay.
repeat chorus until you get sick of it.
