Wyoming Wind by Mark Erelli

This song is off of Seven Curses, an album of murder ballads by Erelli & Jeffrey Foucault.  I saw Caitlin 
Canty perform this song live, and I believe this version is probably a little closer to hers. I think you 
can find a similar performance on youtube.  Standard fingerings for all chords with lots of hammer-ons and 
pull-offs.

I capo III to suit my voice, but i don't think that will match any recording.  Enjoy!


    G                          D
Oh, The Laramie lights
              G
Sparkle like diamonds
           G                         D
Like the stars fallen down from the night
                   Em 
They just kept a-shinin'
              C 
And there's a runaway train
       D
On the high desert plain
  Em                           C
Untamed and it won't be fenced in
         G                      D
And it's known  by the name
                  G
of the Wyoming Wind


      G                  D
It'll rip through a man
                   G    
Like a bullet but faster
    G                        D
From Cody on down to Cheyenne
D                   Em   
Clear through to Nebraska
     C                
It howls and it haunts
D
Goes where it wants
      Em                           C    
I'll taunt you and get under your skin
           G                  D       
No, there ain't no shelter
                  G
From the Wyoming Wind


         Em               
AS the tears you did weep
           C                     
Washed the blood from your cheeks
G                             D 
And the stars faded into the blue
         Em                     
When you heard the wind blowing'
         C              
Did you feel more alone
           G                            D
Or did it sound like God whispering to you?


G                 D
Wide open spaces
D                   G     
nothing but time to forget
G                         D    
Anger flares up and then fades
D                    Em      
like a cowboy cigarette
     C
Reservation ghosts
     D                     
Old split-rail fence posts
      Em                   C   
Just echoes remain of our sins
         G                       D
But they whine, whine, whine
                 G
On the Wyoming Wind


          G                  D
Oh, they whine, whine, whine
               G
On the Wyoming Wind

i think that the em in the bridge is an E7 of sorts. try 0-2-x-2-0-0 in there and let me know what you think. great work on the chords.. a gem! especially Canty's version vs Mark and Jeff's album version.
