The Jayhawks

The Jayhawks are an American alternative country and rock band that emerged from the Twin Cities music scene during the mid 1980s. Their country rock sound was influential on many bands who played the Twin Cities circuit during the 1980s and 1990s like Uncle Tupelo, The Gear Daddies and The Honeydogs. They have released several studio albums, including five on the American Recordings label. On hiatus from 2005 to 2009, the band has since reunited and released a new album, "Mockingbird Time," in September 2011. more »

Come to Wichita 
Won't be there in 40 days 
This, an evil land 
Brings a devil's cloud 

Take a message 
To abide in what you own 
And there'll be no more 
No more people singing 

(Chorus) 
La la la 
In one morning you will be mine 
Where the fields are smiling 
No more people singing la la la 
In one morning you will be mine 
Where the fields are smiling 
Where the fields are smiling 

There by crook and fire 
And the squatters rights 
Don't your cheek get sore 
And you mouth get dry 
Sevens on your sleeve 
Haven't counted days 
Then he slouches home 
To you loved ones gate 

(Chorus)
 
With my pockets torn 
By a whirlwind 
Man takes what it needs 
Turns you inside out 

Come to Wichita 
Won't be there in 40 days 
This, an evil land 
Brings a devil's cloud 

Take a message 
To abide in what you own 
And there'll be no more 
No more people singing 
 
(Chorus)
