South Dakota Morning

 The sun shines down on a South Dakota morning
 And I can see their faces in my eyes
 I wish they were behind me
 My enemy can find me
 If only to remind me that I'm really not alone
 All the South Dakota mornings I have known
 The eagle flies on a South Dakota morning
 And I don't see my eagle anymore
 Now stranger, I must kill you
 You must survive, but will you
 I may just beat you down, but will it even up the score
 I think I saw the eagle just once more
 The rain comes down on a South Dakota morning
 And I can't see the sadness in my town
 So let it be my pillow for underneath your willow
 Wanna go back to you though your nothing but a town
 On the South Dakota grass I lay me down
