about

I read most of this song from the journal of a Nebraska homemaker back in the pioneer times. Those land-grabs left people, mostly women, all alone, out in pretty darn isolated and barren spots on the earth.

lyrics

Written by Mike Finders

It's the third letter since the first you sent.
Makes me wonder why we ever went to Nebraska,
Nebraska on the plains.
I wish you'd be quicker with your reply.
Too much time leaves me wonderin' why we're in Nebraska,
Nebraska on the plains.

Well I wish I was back home in Putnam County.
On the farm in Illinois.
With my old porch swing and my two dear sisters
and my brand new baby boy.
I never wanted a dirt cabin out on the open plain
all alone in the cold dry wind.

No one ever stops in to say hello.
From where we live it's so far to go out in Nebraska,
Nebraska on the plains.
And the wind hits the grass like the waves on the rocks,
and it moans and it howls and it never stops out in Nebraska
Nebraska on the plains.

Baby took a fever the day after you left.
For five days and five nights we never slept out in Nebraska,
Nebraska on the plains.
His crib's been silent for a day or so,
I guess there are some things I don't wanna know out in Nebraska
Nebraska on the plains.
I wonder how you'll find me when you get home,
if you're ever coming home, out to Nebraska.
