Sleep Like Kansas

from Live at the New South Showcase by Joe Cat



Like the dust across the plain
Years behind the wagon trains
We follow in your shoes

Old engine pumps my water
Tornado warnings on my motorola
praying in the cellar gets us through

Small graveyard towns,
Feels like we dont belong here
Its all sacred ground
old mud houses & grassland
Interstate traffics far away
Interstate traffics far away
from this home town

Looks like they rolled up main street
thats ok, because we have a dollar tree
three stations on the tube

Tired as hell from a day at the grainery
Back to the wife & the 40 acre family
Cause of them I can not loose

What if we, sleep like Kansas
where the sky, meets the land like canvas
We're ships out on it’s sea’s

Windmills wave goodbye
Foreword to, the next painted sky
See you in our dreams
