about

This song was inspired by the Book O Pioneers! Written By Willa Cather in 1913.
I finished the book on a cold winter morning & sat with my guitar and a cup of coffee and wrote it in one fell swoop.
Interestingly enough, I found out after we recorded the song that her best friend throughout her lifetime was "Carrie Miner".
I have no doubt that it was a gift sent to me from Willa herself.

lyrics

Well they walked into the dead of night
And put the fireflies and moon to bed
He held her in his arms his shoulder cradled her head
And when she looked into his eyes
She saw the light of a Mexico sky
CH
The plains of Nebraska 1913
Star Crossed Lovers
They were never meant to be

In the early morning hours beyond the
Wheat fields and Cherry trees
Her husband came along and
Rage brought his his knees
For her lover death came quick
With a bullet through his heart
And the next two aimed at her
Didn't miss their mark
And she crawled with sobs and heaving chest
Laid her head on her lovers breast
CH
When the last of the wild roses
Open their hearts to die
You can see two white doves
High in the Omaha night
Flying free Oh so high
Headed South to a Mexico sky

The plains of Nebraska, 1913
Star Crossed Lovers
They were never meant to be
Oh the plains of Nebraska, 1913
Star Crossed Lovers
They were never meant to be
Never meant to be
