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 WindWyoming 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!
