Creative Brief

Some words.  If you like it, spin it.

 

Prairie Wind

Tracy Hutchison

 

Smoky city in the east

Barely air enough to breathe

Barely food enough to eat

Toil morning noon and night

In the dirty mills of steel

For nothing I call mine

 

Long grass country in the west

They say all that’s needed

Are strong hands to pass the test

They call it the great prairie land

Where a woman can thrive

Where a man can be a man

 

Prairie wind

Please call my name

Call me out to where the spirits still remain

Prairie wind

Whisper in my ear

Whisper silent words that only I can hear

Prairie wind

Please sing to me

Sing a song that says, “The land will set you free”

“The land will set you free”

 

I save my pennies though few

Barely clothes enough to sew

Barely meat enough to chew

My bones grow tired in the steel

Where there is no love

And I’m too numb to feel

 

Here I wait and bide my time

Waiting for the western wind

To bring me a sign

When I hear it I will go

To find that long grass freedom

To find my long lost soul

 

Prairie wind

Please call my name

Call me out to where the spirits still remain

Prairie wind

Whisper in my ear

Whisper silent words that only I can hear

Prairie wind

Please sing to me

Sing a song that says, “The land will set you free”

“The land will set you free”

 

Break

 

Bridge:

In a threadbare bed

I lie real still

Listening past

The ringing of the mill

I listen again again again

For the gentle whisper

Of the prairie wind

 

Prairie wind

Please call my name

Call me out to where the spirits still remain

Prairie wind

Whisper in my ear

Whisper silent words that only I can hear

Prairie wind

Please sing to me

Sing a song that says, “The land will set you free”

Prairie wind

Please call my name

Call me out to where the spirits still remain

Prairie wind

Whisper in my ear

Whisper silent words that only I can hear

Prairie wind

Please sing to me

Sing a song that says, “The land will set you free”

“The land will set you free”

“The land will set you free”
