(STEVE DAFOE 2005)
(COPYRIGHTED)


CHORUS:

Fmaj7 Cm7
I'M SETTLIN' DOWN NOW
PUTTIN' MY ROOTS DOWN NOW
STAYIN' ON THESE GREAT PLAINS
G C
WANNA' HEAR THUNDER IN THE CANYON
G Fmaj7
SEE THE GROUND SOAK UP THE RAINS
Fmaj7 Cm7
'CAUSE I'M SETTLIN' DOWN NOW
PUTTIN' MY ROOTS DOWN NOW
I'M JUST SETTLIN' DOWN NOW


VERSE: 1

A G EM
I LOOKED DOWN THE BARRELL OF A GUN
SPENT ALL OF MY LIFE MOVING ALONG
I KEEP DRIVING...JUST LIKE BEING ON THE RUN
C Fmaj7
I REMEMBER THE PLACE I WANNA BE
I PROMISE MYSELF THAT ITS TIME TO STOP
G
'CAUSE I'M.................TO: CHORUS


VERSE: 2


A G EM
I CLOSE MY EYES AND REMEMBER
WHERE GREY MOUNTAINS RISE FROM THE FLOOR
WHERE THE GREAT PLAINS COME UP TO THE DOOR
C Fmaj7
MY OWN RANCH IN THE DAKOTA'S
I PROMISE THIS TIME TO STOP THESE WHEELS
G
'CAUSE I'M...................TO: CHORUS
VERSE: 3


A G EM
BIG RIGS FLY BY ON EITHER SIDE
HOUSTON WILL BE THERE TOMMORROW
BUT I'M THINKING ONLY OF HER
C Fmaj7
MY LITTLE PLACE IN THE DAKATO'S
TURNIN' 'ROUND NOW...GIVING UP THE RIDE
G
'CAUSE I'M....................TO:CHORUS
