Corb Lund - Short Native Grasses (Prairies Of Alberta)

rate me

You can fail to achieve what you'd always believed<br />

You were capable of from the start<br />

You can lose all you have on the gambling avenue<br />

An' you'll know nothing true of your heart<br />

You can see and be seen with those holes in your jeans<br />

But the prairies won't know what it means<br />

<br />

CHORUS:<br />

The prairies of Alberta, they ain't never hearda<br />

The things that are keepin' you down<br />

And the short native grasses don't care that the ashes<br />

Of your dreams match their dry shade of brown<br />

<br />

You can follow the call out to olde Montreal<br />

It may feel like you'll never get back<br />

You can do what you want on Boulevard St. Laurent<br />

It may feel like you've slipped through the crack<br />

You can see and be seen with those holes in your jeans<br />

And the prairies won't know what it means<br />

<br />

CHORUS<br />

<br />

When you fail to remember the gifts of September<br />

And all that's left's a manila, grass rope<br />

And that clean, country wedding that you thought you'd be getting<br />

Seems delayed beyond reasonable hope<br />

You can see and be seen with those holes in your jeans<br />

And the prairies won't know what it means<br />

<br />

You can see and be seen<br />

With those holes in your jeans<br />

And the prairies won't know what it means
