back 

Months went by, Dakota knew where Danny could be found.
Once a year he waited by a deep stone hole in the ground. 
Dakota found Danny where
delivered

Behold the destroyer
By the hand of man
Death be delivered

Anger and hatred are their oars
Revenge their vessel
Be strong
Be patient

Making
was born in the black hills of Dakota
She was washed in the blood of the dying Sioux nation
Raised with a proud but a wandering heart
And she knew
But the land was already claimed by a people
When the cowboy came and when the soldiers came
The story of the American Indian is in a lot of ways
sheltering him, maybe Dakota's
His home
Red man's become his friend, when no one else
Would have him
There's an Indian woman who keeps him from
Being
She knows exactly what to do,
Whenever I'm alone with her.
I can barely make a move
By the time she opens up her eyes
She sings to me at night
is just one oar leaning against the wall
What of our plans for paddles in the Fall?
With the reeds grown high in a winding maze
We were to follow
Standing by a riverside 
A river so deep and so wide 
Current's too strong for only one man 
I know because I tried 

I got eight oars - 
four
As I walked by the lake one day by chance my Dorraine passed my way
Then she and I walked hand in hand on the banks of Ponchartrain
I pinned a flower
than to see her name in lights

So, I came along for the ride but there was just no end
To the smoky bars and unpaid rent, day job blues held by a thread
dust, the morning tribe
Crushed by a million suns
Here the heart of you lies

Over land and sea
I'll come fighting for you
Over land and sea
A dawn
Young Johnny Jones he had a cute little boat
And all the girlies he would take for a float.
He had girlies on the shore,
Sweet little peaches by
can make 
On a lake in the park 

It's an ocean of devotion 
A floating dream for two . . . 

Oh, I keep hopin' that 
The oars will stray 
So we could
Young Johnny Jones he had a cute little boat
And all the girlies he would take for a float.
He had girlies on the shore,
Sweet little peaches by
Young Johnny Jones he had a cute little boat
And all the girlies he would take for a float.
He had girlies on the shore,
Sweet little peaches by
Aboard a craft bereft of oar
I rowed upstream to find Lenore
Abducted by a bandit or
A king from some forgotten war

And mindful of his larval
wicky-wacky-woo! 

Fujiama, get a mama, 
Then your troubles increase, boy! 
It's south dakota you want a soda 
first shake me then ten cents please

They hug
"...from the darkness, risen our of blackness,
A flame once, burning like red blood
Was seen by those who waited for the battle,
To lead them
All in the golden afternoon full leisurely we glide 
For both our oars, with little skill, by little arms are plied 
While little hands make vain
As a young man I went riding out on the western plain
In the state of North Dakota I met my Nellie Kane 
I met my Nellie Kane

She was living in
As a young man I went riding out on the western plain
In the state of North Dakota I met my Nellie Kane 
I met my Nellie Kane

She was living in
wicky-wacky-woo! 

Fujiama, get a mama, 
Then your troubles increase, boy! 
It's south dakota you want a soda 
first shake me then ten cents please

They hug
Train death paintings, anti-meth murals
Color the ghettos of N. Dakota
Bismark tractor association, coffee and toothpaste
This was vacation
I
at the oars
   G#7              C#m
Or staring from the rail
        E -A         B7
And the sea bids farewell
             G#m
She waves in swells
the harbour,
Silently ignite.
The oar dips in to oil like water and we,
Are away.

Your hand won't write, not tonight,
But your mind may wander.
Into
