***Cabin Fever

There’s a fat brown Labrador trying to get out of the cold
Layin’ out by the wood stove he’s getting old
That storm would have ripped right through him
Left three foot of snow behind
But you can’t let cabin fever wrap around your mind

We danced round and round like swirling snow
We danced round and round ‘bout as fast as we can go

Cabin fever’s got a big hat on this town
Cabin fever’s takin’ us down

We danced round and round like swirling snow
We danced round and round ‘bout as fast as we can go
Round and round like swirling snow
We danced round and round ‘bout as fast as we can go

My bike’s in the shed
My woman’s in my head
My bike’s in the shed
My woman’s in my head

***As it Snowed

We talked for hours, hours and hours
As it snowed, as it snowed

The fire was perfect
The wine was red and warm
North wind whistled a lullaby in the storm

We talked for hours, hours and hours
As it snowed, as it snowed

Grandma’s quilt, woven squares and candlelight
Soft yellow words
Long love promises through the night

We talked for hours, hours and hours
As it snowed, as it snowed

We talked for hours, hours and hours
As it snowed, as it snowed

We talked for hours, hours and hours
As it snowed, as it snowed

***Cabin By Nemo

Found your laughter in the closet
Stacked behind your shoes
You must have forgotten where you left it
But it’s something I could use

It’s snowing in the mountains
You can smell it in the air
There’s a cabin by Nemo
And I’d love to take you there

Let’s act like outlaw lovers
That need a place to hide
There’s a smell of smoke in the pines
And horses to ride

It’s snowing in the mountains
You can smell it in the air
There’s a cabin by Nemo
Please let me take you there

Mountain sun shines on the morning snow
Dancing colors in your heart
Stoke the fire and go back to bed
We ain’t ready for the day to start

It’s snowing in the mountains
You can smell it in the air
There’s a cabin by Nemo
We can find laughter there

Grab a couple books, skis and your checkerboard
I can bring some candles and fixings for chicken noodle soup

It’s snowing in the mountains
You can smell it in the air
It’s snowing in the mountains
You can smell it in the air

***Corn Field Prayers

I prayed in a cornfield last night
Underneath the Januarys full moonlight
I was walking with my dog
Dropping teardrops in the snow
I pray now wherever I go

He was a blue-eyed boy beautiful and wild
Parents should never have to lose a child
Wind talks for me now
Tells me things that I don’t know
I pray now wherever I go
I pray now wherever I go

The tsunami came and all angels had to fly
To help all them souls into the sky
Angel in my sleep he said he had to go
He said to pray wherever I go
I pray now wherever I go
I pray now wherever I go

***Easy Blessings

Spring is right around the corner
One last snow in this go ‘round
Wind chimes are singin’ and a dancin’
‘bout a blizzard blowin’ in at sundown

I thought I’d walk along the willows
And move my shadow through the trees
An’ count all my easy blessings
An’ scout out a rabbit from my knees

It’s easy to imagine
As I move my shadow through the trees
An’ count all my easy blessings
That you are right here with me

It’s easy to imagine
As I move my shadow through the trees
An’ count all my easy blessings
That you are right here with me

It was easy to imagine
As I move my shadow through the trees
And I count all my easy blessings
That you are right here with me

***I’m The Buffalo

Weak sunlight filters down today
my bootsteps puff the light snowflakes away
I''m nursing back a vision I can''t change
I squint my eyes to get new colors into range
pink explodes in front of my tired eyes
the wind is winter blue and it cries
cowboy I''m the buffalo
cowboy I''m the buffalo
I sleep inside the willows down the bank
the river''s low and the Army is to thank
the ice won''t hold me up very long
I squint my eyes and hear and see my song
pink explodes in front of my tired eyes
the wind is winter cold and it cries
cowboy I''m the buffalo
cowboy I''m the buffalo

***Nemo Nightmare

Cat cry came over the mountain
In the cold air that’s a long way to go
Horses were restless and noisy
But they calmed with the first sight of snow

He went to split some firewood
As the blizzard came crashing down
It was blowing so hard and so heavy
Immense, it covered all the ground

The wind it ripped through the night
Wind ripped through the night

It snowed for nights and days
And the horses were lost in the white
Mountain cats they came callin’
On the wind of the night

They went out to fetch more firewood
The blizzard was still crashing down
Red blood in the white snow
No horses to be found
And the wind ripped through the night
Wind ripped through the night

***Nights Turn Cold

Nights turn cold
Nothing you can do
Nights turn cold
Ain’t nothing you can do
Nights turn cold
Baby don’t want you

I drink whiskey
When I can’t stand myself
I drink whiskey
When I can’t stand myself
Nights turn cold
Sitting on a night shelf

Door is open
The door is closed
Door is open
That door is closed
Nights turn cold
She won’t step out our her clothes

I don’t see right
Cause a woman stole my eyes
I don’t see right
Cause a woman stole my eyes
Nights turn cold
As I define my alibis

Nights turn cold
Nothing you can do
Nights turn cold
Ain’t a damned thing you can do
Nights turn cold
Baby don’t want you

***Sioux City Sue Revisited

Friday night stockyard bars at Sioux City
A blues band down at Rhonda’s Speak Easy
At the Cattlemen’s bartender’s smothering one of 5 customers
Pretty woman drunk and so sad
I think she may be Sioux City Sue

Well my hand is broke from a fight I may have picked
The stockyards have beat me again
The fog from the river is a curtain for an actress
Pretty woman drunk and so sad
I think she may be Sioux City Sue

I listen but the whiskey is waxing my ears
She said nothing is pretty anymore
The manure painted panels have given up their white
Says that pretty woman drunk and so sad
I think she may be Sioux City Sue

I laid down in the snow and in my stock trailer
I locked the keys in my pickup truck
She found a blanket in her car covered me up as she left
Such a pretty woman drunk and so sad
I think she may be Sioux City Sue
Sioux City Sue
Sioux City Sue
Ain’t no girl sweet as my sweet Sioux City Sue

***Circle Song

There’s a frozen pond on the hillside
That’s lit up from the icy winter moon
And there’s a pickup moving slow
Down the gravel road
Snow plow ain’t left him too much room

There’s a blizzard comin’
You can feel it in your bones
East wind blowin’ it in
Should be headed home
You should be headed home

Horses are white from the snow, not movin’
The only dark is in their eyes
Dog in the ditch is huntin’ rabbit
Catches a lame one and it cries

There’s a blizzard comin’
You can feel it in your bones
East wind is blowin’ it in
You should be headed home
You should be headed home

There’s an ice shack on that small pond
Smoke from a stove curls in the air
They must be catchin’ some big fish
Or there wouldn’t be no one there

There’s a blizzard comin’
You can feel it in your bones
East wind is blowin’ it in
You should be headed home
You should be headed home
You should be headed home

***Keep Your Soul Strong

Count all the baby curls and the white snowflakes
Have a small puppy, do whatever it takes
Taste it like ice cream or smell it like the rain
Hold it so tightly you cry out in pain

Whatever you do, live life hard
Play like you’ll always draw the winning card
Love long and never quit
Keep your soul strong, that’s most all of it
Don’t settle for walking if you want to run
Stand up to a bully if it needs to be done
Remember the fallen and play hard for your teams
Climb all your mountains and echo all your dreams

Whatever you do, live life hard
Play like you’ll always draw a winning card
Love long and never quit
Keep your soul strong, that’s most all of it
Keep your soul strong, that’s most all of it

***Sweet Kiss

Gimme that sweet kiss
That I''m gonna miss
That''s wet and warm
Like a log cabin in a snowstorm

Let''s have some red wine
Take our sweet time
Let the fires steam this place
Feel it red hot on your face

We don''t have forever
But I will never
Forget the light
In your eyes tonight

Gimme that sweet kiss
That I''m gonna miss
That''s wet and warm
Like a log cabin in a snowstorm

Gimme that sweet kiss
That I''m gonna miss
Gimme that sweet kiss
That I''m gonna miss

***Wing and a Prayer

There''s frost on the windowpanes
Snow blowin'' under the door
It''s the second week in April
Shouldn''t be winter anymore
My little bro''s talkin'' desperate
Like he''s gonna take out a bank
I understand where he''s comin'' from
Four-dollar fuel in his tank

We''re tryin'' to fly around here
On a wing and prayer

My sweetheart is limpin''
Oh she''s got a bad wheel
Got to go to six different appointments
It''s a medical referral deal
Got two kids in college
Thank God they''re both tough
Like to give them some spending money
But around here there just ain''t enough

We''re tryin'' to fly around here
On a wing and a prayer
We''re just tryin'' to fly around here
On a wing and a prayer

***House Lights Yellow

The snow is coming and the wind is blowing
You can hear it howlin’ through the trees
Ya keep the fire hot and you stay inside
When the snow is past your knees

House lights are yellow on the snow
As I walk outside and hear the north wind blow

The snow is coming and the wind is blowing
You can hear it howlin’ through the trees
Ya keep the fire hot and you stay inside
When the snow is past your knees

House lights are yellow on the snow
As I walk outside and hear the north wind blow

The snow is coming and the wind is blowing
You can hear it howlin’ through the trees
Ya keep the fire hot and you stay inside
When the snow is past your knees

***Buffalo Blanket Girl

She''s out there running with the deer
she''s been living out in the woods for years
in a teepee she stretched on her own
she tends her campfire all alone
she lives like her people lived
one hundred years ago
buffalo blanket to keep her warm
from the North wind and snow
Coyotes listen as she prays
she fishes in the river on most days
rabbit fur moccasins on her feet
there''s berries and greens she can eat
She lives like her people lived
one hundred years ago
buffalo blanket to keep her warm
from the North wind and the snow

***Hoot Owl

A hoot owl snuck up on me yesterday
Lakota legend says someone''s going away
sunshine brings us shadows
before the North wind brings the snow
she dances in the shadows
pretends I don''t know
she ignores the angels
she pretends I don''t know
A hoot owl knows some secrets
from hangin'' in the trees
tries to send a warning
he sees her on her knees
sunshine brings us shadows
before the North wind brings the snow
she dances in the shadows
pretends I don''t know
she ignores the angels
she pretends I don''t know
she ignores the angels
she pretends I don''t know

***Dog Eat Dog

It’s all you can do
Just getting on
When you find bloody footprints
In the snow at dawn

There’s no mistaking
You’re taken for a bump on a log
When the cat’s got your tongue
And it’s dog-eat-dog

Roses are dead now
And hanging on the wall
And the words are all different now
Since you took that fall

There’s no mistaking
You’ve taken a long hard look at God
But the cat’s got your tongue
It’s dog-eat-dog

There’s no mistaking
Words are taken as cliché
Dog-eat-dog is the cat’s meow today

***Woman’s Intuition

She’s a well-preserved woman
Who’s fighting off getting old
She likes pretty snowstorms
She don’t like the cold

She believes in woman’s intuition
Men’s tendency for lies
So I better be telling her the truth
When I look in her eyes

She’s a well-meaning woman
Who don’t like talking mean
She talks good of other people
Or she don’t say a thing

She believes in that woman’s intuition
And men’s tendency for lies
So I better be telling her the truth
When I look in her eyes
Well I better be telling her the truth
When I look in her eyes

***The Wind Waits

Soft sunrise pink on the mountains
And the wind waits for you
Sleepless eyes darkness in retreat
And the wind waits for you

But I’m leaving down the byways and the highways
Down roads that have no names
My love will linger like the snowflakes a-fallin’
With no one to blame
But the wind waits for you
The wind waits for you

Pine smoke rising sun on the shadows
Still the wind waits for you
I know you’re coming I found wings
And I can’t wait for you

I’m leaving down the byways and the highways
Down roads that have no names
My love will linger like the snowflakes a-fallin’
There’s no one to blame
But the wind waits for you
Oh the wind waits for you
