 Blue prairie

(Tim Spencer / Bob Nolan)

 

Sing Along with the Sons of the Pioneers

 

Blue prairie, blue echoes ring,

Blue, as I sing of a longing blue as you.

 

Weary day and lonely night

Seem to say that nothing’s right.

Everything is feelin’ blue.

Here in my very soul I feel it, too.

Far in the distant hills I hear a cry

Then a silent hush but no reply.

Prairie, won’t you tell me true

Why have they spread this gloomy blanket of blue over you?

 

Blue prairie, blue are the skies,

Blue are the sighs of a night wind, fallin’.

Blue prairie, blue are the hills,

Blue are the trills of a night bird, callin’.

Every beating heart beats a rhythm that is blue

And the moon has cast a blue reflection in the dew

So the wind, while on its way

Seems to cry and sigh and say, “Blue!”

Blue prairie, blue echoes ring,

Blue, as I sing of a longing blue as you.
