about

"The Boom". The thing about a boom is that once you've grown comfortable working hard for it and seeing it payoff, it can be a real cold shower on the day that little hints of a slowdown start blowing in from the eastern plains. This song is for anyone who watches commodity prices out of the corner of his eye.

lyrics

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
