        Follow the typical signs, the hand painted lines down prairie roads

who knows?

        wild western plains.  Where a man could drift in legendary myth by

        roaming over spaces                           The land was free

        white robed woman tall yet maidenly.  Such power in her hand as she

        the wagon man's family.  I see Indians that crawl through this
mural that

        recalls our history.

Verse 2:  Who were the homestead wives?  Who were the gold rush brides?
        Does anybody know?  Do their works survive their yellow fever lives in
        pages they wrote?  The land was free yet it cost their lives.  
        In miner's lust for gold a family's house was bought and sold,
piece by piece.
        A widow staked her claim on a dollar and his name, so painfully.
        In letters mailed back home, her Eastern sisters they would moan as
        would read

      Gm                         F                       C
        accounts of madness, childbirth, loneliness, and grief

      Gm                         F                        C
        accounts of madness, childbirth, loneliness, and grief  (repeat
several times)

Ending :  Gm     F     C
