WALKIN' JIM STOLTZ


Sweetwater Lyrics

G F C G
1) That Wyoming wind she's a tough one my friend, she
sings like she never will end.
F
She rolls down the Great Divide, cross the Red Deserts
side,
C D
And stalks you like a long lost friend.
Em C
The water holes are far and few, you gotta take what
comes to you,
Am D
You've got to walk for days then round the bend,
Chorus: G Am
What waters are these that flow through the barrens,
C G
A ribbon of green, how she falls,
G Am

Some call her the wine or the dew on the vine,
C D G
But lord knows the Sweetwater calls.
2) Wild space will feed your mind, mid-day sun will
burn you blind,
Your boots will leave their story in the dust.
But the night will bring a chill and later snow I know
it will
The seasons here ain't nothing you can trust,
Then comes the day you can't go on, but you top the
hill and start to run
There she goes a-singin' through the dust.
(Chorus)
3) It was many years ago, o'er a hundred or so, when
the buffalo flowed like drops of rain,
Their tracks are all gone, but I still hear their song,
Mingled with this streams sweet refrain,
Down from the Wind River Range, She meets the sage and
greets the plains,
Shining like some unending flame
Just a livin' up to her name.
(Chorus)
