Seen him playing in his backyard
F                        C
Young boy just starting out
G       E7              Am
So much history in this landscape
Bb                         G
So much confusion, so much doubt

Angry kids, mean and dumb

Looks like a painting, that blue skyline

God hates fags where we come from

'Western skies' don't make it right

'Home of the brave' don't make no sense
             E
I've seen a scarecrow wrapped in wire
        Am
Left to die on a high ridge fence
                  Dm                      C
It's a cold, cold wind, It's a cold, cold wind

It's a cold wind blowing, Wyoming

See two coyotes run down a deer

Hate what we don't understand

You pioneers give us your children
Bb                                    E Am E
But it's your blood that stains their hands
 
CHORUS

It's a cold wind blowing, Wyoming
 
BRIDGE
E                            Am
Somewhere that road forks up ahead
E                    Am
To ignorance and innocence
F                              G
Three lives drift on different winds
           E                Am    Am/G
Two lives ruined, one life spent

I've seen a scarecrow wrapped in wire
        Am
Left to die on a high ridge fence
