about

West of center and east of west are the high and dry North American Great Plains. Making a living goes only as far as the price of a barrel of oil will let it. Love has to be hard in order to survive. And everything breathing or otherwise is constantly weathered by the western wind. Hearts can get as calloused as two hard-working hands, but a little sun can melt the ice pretty quick. For the cowboys, cool cats, drunks, and drifters who cast shadows here, life is a rough, rewarding ride across the HARD NATRONA PLAIN.

Track Name: Blown Off By The Wind
Hard Chinook is blowing, it's tearing me to shreds
Pounding like a speedball smoking freight train through my head
I heard the screen door banging, I heard that ol' dog growl
When the nighttime comes a-callin' that wind is gonna howl

It might make me crazy, I might start confusing sanity with sin
The last man left to stand it is the only one not blown off by the wind

Pretty senorita tried to pull me from my game
She tried to love me tenderly, wanted me to do the same
But love is hard, it has to be in order to survive
So give it like you mean it if you want to stay alive

When she pulls up right beside me in some mem'ry really only just pretend
Well, I'm blown back to my senses as I watch an old ghost blown off by the wind

Don't tread on any ground that you're not fit to handle
Wildfire burns and spreads from some ol' lonely candle
On a sixty-mile an hour tear the soul out of you day
If you didn't come to take it, you'd better come to pray

When the red flag gives a warning, and you see four horsemen coming in the end
That's just another fear to feed that'll just as soon be blown off by the wind
Track Name: The Boom
They're rolling up red carpets on Highway 59
They're stacking rigs to save up for a bigger bottom line
You can smell the worry blowing off the eastern plain
No one talks beyond the facts but the facts are just the same

When it gets back up to eighty, when supplies are wearing thin
Then the boom is gonna roll around again

I left a world in shambles seven years ago
I came to build a better life beneath the wind and snow
Seven days of work like meant skies were getting blue
Now how much of this scraping by do I want to put us through

My wife says we can make due on whatever she brings in
Then the boom is gonna roll around again

Half the nation's screaming "drill, baby drill"
Half just hates our way of life, they love this jagged little pill
Both go off to fight some other battle far away
While I sit here in the aftermath to try to fight another day

Someday we'll have a big parade like a better day that's been
Then the boom is gonna roll around again

I can smell the worry blowing off the eastern plain
Track Name: Let Go Of My Heart
I've moved on down the line from yesterday and all I find is
Some sorry feeling I won't solve a thing remembering
So I'll let go of yesterday, but first I've got to say to you that

You've got to let go of my heart, you've got to cut your lonely cards
Out of my memory, girl let me set you free
You need to make another home, I need to make it on my own
You've got to let go of my heart

Don't want to tell you how to live your life, I'm past that now
But I don't want you with me after you've been gone for so damn long
Now, I'm not gonna beg you but you ought to know that I don't care so

You've got to let go of my heart, you've got to cut your lonely cards
Out of my memory, girl let me set you free
You need to make another home, I need to make it on my own
You've got to let go of my heart

Something about you in my head, my heart,
Just leaves me here in the dark

It's not that you have anything to do with what belongs to me, so

You've got to let go of my heart, you've got to cut your lonely cards
Out of my memory, girl let me set you free
You need to make another home, I need to make it on my own
You've got to let go of my heart

I've moved on down the line from yesterday
