DUSTY SKIES


dusty skies • I can't see nothing in sight
good old Dan you'll have to guide me right
for we lose our way • the cattle will stray
and we lose them all tonight
with all of the grass and water's gone
we'll have to keep the cattle moving on
sand blowing • I just can't breathe in this air
thought it would soon be clear and fair
but the dust storms were bad • they took all we had
I've got to be moving somewhere

I hate to leave the old ranch so bare
but I've got to be moving somewhere
so get along doggies • we're moving off of this range
never thought as how I'd make the change
but the blue skies have failed • we're on our last trail
underneath these dusty skies
these ain't tears in my eyes
just sand from these dusty skies
