Dinosaur Bones
by Ken Feldman

Roustabouts, roughnecks, and dinosaur bones
Out to the rig in the buffalo’s home
Two barrels a day keeps the banker away
Then it’s down to Juanita’s she’s got something to say
Look away look away to a prairie so green
Look away look away so serene
There’s an old mound of ground with bones made of stone
Roustabouts, roughnecks, and dinosaur bones

A horse and a gun and a one-room schoolhouse
Out ‘neath the tree where the Wind River rounds
She still sits today the way she did then
If you’re lucky you’ll hear her voice over the wind
Look away look away to a prairie so green
Look away look away so serene
There’s an old mound of ground with bones made of stone
Roustabouts, roughnecks, and dinosaur bones

She speaks of the bison, of the oil, the Sioux
Of the cowboys and mammoths that wander here too
Of the people who left their marks on the wall
She dreams that one day they’ll return for it all
Look away look away to a prairie so green
Look away look away so serene
There’s an old mound of ground with bones made of stone
Roustabouts, roughnecks, and dinosaur bones
