The Cowboys of Deadwood South Dakota ( If you go to Deadwood South Dakota there is a cemetary at the top of the hill overlooking the town. There are Cowboys from the 1880 's like Wild Bill Hickock and others buried here). ---------------------------------------------- The cowboys were riding under a pale moon light.Trying to get to the other side of the Rio Grand into Mexico. They were going to Mexico. And we're all Desperados -riding hard into the sun chasing our dreams of Americana but we're all really just running from the law.And Brenda and Scott are driving down Highway 41 with the windows down and the radio on. Like Bonnie and Clyde they're singing there own song They are long gone. And we're all Desperados Riding hard into the sun Chasing our dreams of Americana but we're all really just running from the law. The cowboys were buried a long time ago in the town of Deadwood South Dakota And Brenda and Scott are in the Parking lot drinking whiskey from a paper cup - cause we're all Desperados riding hard into the sun chasing our dreams of Americana But we're all really just running from the law.
I dreamed I saw a bluesman sitting at a piano in a smoke filled bar in 1928. In the middle of a song he stopped playing and turned away from the piano. It was as if he was looking right at me. He yelled out into my dream and shouted "Write my song". I woke up from my dream and this song appeared.
