song title:Big Sky
date: 2003-10-15
song notes:Written for debut at the Fillmore Auditorium
lyrics: 

verse 1:
There's horses on the prairie and there's pride out on the plains
There's stories in the hillsides and old ghosts still robbing trains
There's a mighty wind a'blowing but no one seems to mind out in the Big Sky

verse 2:
There's acres upon acres upon miles of open road
There's space enough to fill a city boy up to explode
There's room to spill your guts out here and nothing seems to echo off the Big Sky

chorus:
In the Big Sky, I feel rhythm in my soul
In the Big Sky, where the making broke the mold for the Big Sky
Where river bends unwind and I get lost and then I find
I just want a little piece of the Big Sky
I just want a little piece of the Big Sky
I just want a little taste of Big Sky living before I die
I just want a little piece of the Big Sky

verse 3:
I've got a friend in California doing 29-to-life
There's shackles on his body but his mind is open wide
Deep inside his walls he knows he's never satisfied without the Big Sky

verse 4:
He's thinking and he's making up his mind to make a change
He needs to see the mountains and the wild open range
He's wondereing about the little things that he can rearrange to get to Big Sky

chorus:
In the Big Sky, I feel rhythm in my soul
In the Big Sky, where the making broke the mold for the Big Sky
Where river bends unwind and I get lost and then I find
I just want a little piece of the Big Sky
I just want a little piece of the Big Sky
I just want a little taste of Big Sky living before I die
I just want a little piece of the Big Sky
I just want a little piece, a little taste of Big Sky
I just want a little piece of the Big Sky
