Lyrics:

ERASED

Erased-- is a life we shared on a stretch of the great prairie,
No return,-- to the waving wheat fields
All that's left is my memory,
Many years have come and gone
Since the time I grew up there,
Who would believe the place I loved
has vanished in thin air.



I recall--all the secrets shared in the arms of the poplar tree,
Hear the laugh-of three best friends
My sister, my dog, and me.
Take me back-to the smell of bread and the slamming of the old screen door.
If I could-I would go back
But that life isn't there anymore.


CHORUS: That Hereford's a heifer
A mama pig is a sow,
My kids haven't got a clue
W hat I'm talking 'bout now.
No need to explain about the birds and bees
They're doing what comes naturally


There was a time-we played fox and geese
On diamonds in the snow'
Dad feeds cows - in the cutting wind though it's 40 degrees below.
Coyotes howl after sun has set on that stretch of barren land
What might seem like a simple life turns a boy into a man,


BRIDGE;
Oh you can't erase the azure of Alberta's summer sky
Or dreams of girls and boys that float on clouds as they sail by.
The meadowlark in spring will never lose its cheerful song,
The pussy willow shows it's head 'cause winter's almost gone

I close my eyes, and the rooster crows, another day begins
All the cows and their frisky calves are out in the pasture again
The sun, brings it's light to all, makes my spirit strong and free.
Can take the farm girl off the farm, can't take the farm girl out of me



CHORUS:
There's a swather, a combine, a baler, a plow,
Canola, oats, wheat, "look the barley's ripe now.
My kids are city slickers
That is easy to see
Their only question is "What's B.S.E."


Erased is the life we shared on a stretch of the great prairie,
I still return to the waving wheatfields they're engraved in my memory.
Many years, have come and gone, I'm not the girl I used to be.
Can take the farm girl off the farm
Can't take the farm girl out of me.

Can take the farm girl off the farm
Can't take the farm girl out of me.
