        That's all the guitar, now YOU just got to go and listen to the
tune
        to see what goes where (hehe I'm too lazy :) ) But here's the
lyrics

Me debunk an american myth?
And take my life in my hands?
Where the great plains begin
at the hundreth meridian
at the hundreth meridian
where the great plains begin

Driving down a corduroy road
weeds standing shoulder high
ferris wheel is ruting
off in the distance

Chorus:
At the hundreth meridian
at the hundreth meridian
at the hundreth meridian
where the great plains begin

Left alone to get gigantic
Hard, huge, and haunted
A generation so much dumber than it's parents
came crashing through the window

A raven strains along the line of the road
carrying a muddy, old skull
the wires show their approval
Off down the distance

Chorus

I remember, I remember buffalo
And I remember Hengelo
It would seem to me
I remember every single f**king thing I know

If I die of Vanity, promise me, promise me
that if they bury me some place I don't want to be
That you'll dig me up and transport me
uncerimoniously
away from the swollen city breeze, garbage bag trees
whispers of disease, and acts of enormity
and lower me slowly, sadly, and properly
Get Ry Cooder to sing my eulogy

Chorus

        That's all the guitar, now YOU just got to go and listen to the
tune
        to see what goes where (hehe I'm too lazy :) ) But here's the
lyrics

Me debunk an american myth?
And take my life in my hands?
Where the great plains begin
at the hundreth meridian
at the hundreth meridian
where the great plains begin

Driving down a corduroy road
weeds standing shoulder high
ferris wheel is ruting
off in the distance

Chorus:
At the hundreth meridian
at the hundreth meridian
at the hundreth meridian
where the great plains begin

Left alone to get gigantic
Hard, huge, and haunted
A generation so much dumber than it's parents
came crashing through the window

A raven strains along the line of the road
carrying a muddy, old skull
the wires show their approval
Off down the distance

Chorus

I remember, I remember buffalo
And I remember Hengelo
It would seem to me
I remember every single f**king thing I know

If I die of Vanity, promise me, promise me
that if they bury me some place I don't want to be
That you'll dig me up and transport me
uncerimoniously
away from the swollen city breeze, garbage bag trees
whispers of disease, and acts of enormity
and lower me slowly, sadly, and properly
Get Ry Cooder to sing my eulogy

Chorus
