Boundary County (Jewell Eilen)

Say hello to Boundary County If you make it up that way I don't get around as much As I did in my younger days I was raised in that country So pure and so fair But I took too hard to the whiskey And I wandered away from there. I miss the barbed wire and the sage On that wild northern range The giant, staring sky Like a bright, tragic blue eye Why I left I can't say why I can't say why Say hello to Boundary County for me She's prettier than dreams If you've been someplace so far away Then you've really seen some things Those miles and miles of steel rails Are a one-way track And no matter how hard I try I never make it back I never make it back I miss those violet hills And the sweet smell of the fields Reach their arms out so wide Like heaven's only bride Why I left I can't say why I can't say why Every man serves his time I know I've done my share And when that old roll is called You will find me there In Boundary County, If you make it up that way I don't get around as much As I did in my younger days
