lyrics

Life in the big woods was good
We did the best that we could
Oh the winters they were cold
But the summers soon rolled
Life in the big woods was good
Oh if only I still had that to lose
But now it’s gone
cuz I heard the call
of the high plains drifter
Caught up with a bus stop grifter
How the cold wind blows
If only I’d a known
life in the big woods was enough
But I kept on running after what wasn’t what
I wanted or had
If only I knew how to withstand
The call of the high plains drifter
The cast of the bus stop grifter
Oh the westward way lay open like the day
But the nights were so cold and lonely
If only I’d a known to keep going west
If only I stayed then I never would have left
Would I wish for what I hadn’t
without knowing how tragic
The life of the high plains drifter
The fate of the bus stop grifter
How cold the wind blows
So cold that nobody knows
How could the wind seems
Blowing me right from my dreams

Oh the westward way lay open like the day but the night was so cold and lonely
