lyrics

hitchhiked out of Casper, east to Douglas
and north on 59
straight through Thunder Basin
with something on your mind
there's gold mines, they tell ya
in the hills of the Lakota
where granddaddy made his last stand
go follow Platte River, just as long as you're ready
to stand face-to-face with the land
sure enough its your land

and you walked yourself into a sticky situation
well now take it light, but take it
and everything's gonna be alright

winter hit in 1887
and wiped every cattleman cold
except McGillicuddy, and his dukes of oil and gold
so you found the Plains Bandits
and you rustled up your palamino
and you rode into Johnson County
you lost most every ranch, but they lost McGillicuddy
and you stood right up to the man

and you walked yourself into a sticky situation
well now take it light, but take it
and everything's gonna be alright

nobody remembers the Sioux Lakota
and what went down at Harney Peak
Black Elk saw the world's center
and he vanished up Powder Creek
and no one remembers the Treaty of Laramie (1868)
we all leave without one grain of sand
each tribe gets a million, but the numbers don't tell the story
when you borrowed every penny in your hand
there's gold mines, they tell ya
in the hills of the Lakota
where the frontier makes its last stand
go follow your river, just as long as you're ready
to stand face-to-face with the land
sure enough its your land

and you walked yourself into a sticky situation
well now take it light, but take it
and everything's gonna be alright
everything's gonna be alright
everything's gonna be alright
