Lyrics/Notes

here we go . . the way of the buffalo
aint it a shame? . . it feels so lame

the grass grew tall . . the river’s ran
the wind blew ‘cross the plain
the purple mountains’ majesty
the amber waves of grain

here we go . . the way of the buffalo
aint it a crime? . . does your street look like mine?

room to run . . room to move
thunderin’ ‘cross the plain
room to roam . . oh, room to range
room to romp & play

here we go . . the way of the buffalo
what a disgrace . . paved the whole damned place

i’m a freedom actor
gonna sit on my tractor
& mow the yard down
gonna weed out the trouble . .
clean up my bubble

the big broad shoulders . . the noble beard
the head held proud & high
licked & lamed . . tricked & tamed
it’s enough to make ya cry

here we go . . the way of the buffalo
what a disgrace . . take that smile off of your face

blame it on the train . . blame it on the train
the steel arms pumpin’ . . the nostrils aflame
that old old iron horse with the smoky mane

here we go . . the way of the buffalo
here we go . . the way of the buffalo
what a disgrace . . take that smile off of your face
