"I don't swim, I'm a prairie girl"


Every day, she's like a holiday
Even in the month of May
When snow’s melting all around us
It’s the profoundest sort of enamorance
She does a rain dance
And makes the wheat grow tall and
When the rain’s falling in droves and droves
I wish she’d dive right in
But she's a prairie girl
It’s always sink or swim with her
And when I'm diving in,
She's climbing out, out

It’s my turn,
I’m fainting from the sunburn and
There’s passion in the grain belt
Where everything I’ve felt about her
I want to shout out
It’s romanticy,
She’s not a fantasy and
Even when the northern lights
Are filling everyone with rapture
She’s the one I’m really after
Prairie girl
It’s always sink or swim with her
And when I'm diving in
She's climbing out, she’s climbing out

She could be the one to lead my heart astray
Rolling in the fields with the bales of hay and
Every day could really be a holiday
Every day could really be
A holiday, a holiday, a holiday

But who’s to say how she even got that way
And I don’t wanna speculate
But there’s something in the water fountains
That rolled down from the Rocky Mountains
Lovey dove, it’s everything I’m dreaming of
She turns it all on its head
And when I figure out what’s happened
She’s someone else instead

‘Cause she's a prairie girl,
it’s always sink or swim with her
When I'm diving in, she's climbing out
She's climbing out, she's climbing out
She's climbing out
