Lyrics

HIGH PLAINS by Randy Palmer and Randy Brown 

My headlights are looking forward
To the Oklahoma border
Leaving Arkansas and all these trees behind 
Gonna roll across theses ranges
Wide empty spaces
Down gravel roads to peace of mind 
 
These wheels are pointed westward
Through the scrub oak and the red dirt
To the acres my Great Grand Daddy claimed 
It's a farm, a family, good hard red winter wheat
Everyone knows my name, Out on the High Plains 
 
CHORUS 
Each mile along this road Takes to where I belong 
On the High Plains 
White lines slap the rhythm
To a new verse being written
To the song I've been singing all my life There is no mystery
I did not fit Tennessee,So I'm on my way to clear blue sky 
Look across the horizon
You might see a dust cloud rising Behind a 1999 beat up Ford
My name is on the mail box, My key fits the door lock
My favorite chair is on the porch On the High Plains 
 CHORUS 
BRIDGE
 Without those city lights
Milky Way's gonna shine so bright 
This blind man might receive his sight Once again
On the High Plains 
 
CHORUS

Story

Inspired by a morning walk at Rocky Mountain Lodge on the Conejos River is southern Colorado. A friends dogs, 2 black labs (Touson and Vegas) and his white lab (Dallas - who recently passed away) were lounging one morning. The 2 black dogs in the shade and the Dollas in the sunshine. The chorus was written before I got 100 yards away. I played the song minus the bridge for Randy Palmer and 10 minutes later he had the bridge. 

Lyrics

White Dog in the sunshine by R Brown and R Palmer

CHORUS
Black dog in the shade
White dog in the sunshine
Everybody needs a place
Some space where they can feel fine
Black dog in the shade
White dog in the sunshine 
 
Been a square peg looking for a round hold way too long
Seen lots of sad faces in places, I don't belong
Ole black’s got is make in the shade of his cottonwood tree
He found his spot, I want to find one for me
 
CHORUS
 
Dallas is sleeping, ain’t doing nobody no wrong
He is fine in the sunshine, know right where he belongs
Square peg’s tired of lying and trying to be somebody else
If I can’t be a round peg, guess I’ll try being myself 
 
CHORUS
 
BRIDGE
In the life we only get one chance
So find your spot and get out there and dance… 
 
CHORUS

Lyrics

Not Ready Yet  

The whippoorwill, she sings all night
The mockingbird all day
I love to hear them singing out
Means everything’s OK. 
It means that the worlds OK
 
When the barn owl hunts the whippoorwill
The hawk the mockingbird
They hide out in the tall, tall grass
Their song will not be heard. 
Their song will not be heard
 
CHORUS
Cause they’re not ready. 
They’re not ready yet
They’re not ready. 
No, they’re not ready yet
They know some day they’ll fly away
But they’re not ready yet
 
He’s her handsome man at 98
She’s his bride of 93
Still holding hands and making plans
For a diamond jubilee. 
A diamond jubilee

CHORUS
 
One day I’ll rise on eagle wings
Way up in the sky
Leave behind hate, death and war 
And among the stars I’ll fly
Among the stars I’ll fly
 
CHORUS (I’m)
