    Lyrics

    Ward Bond
    Was his sidekick rowdy Yates
    Drove that wagon train out west
    Right along this interstate

    'Cross the high plains of Kansas
    To the Colorado line
    Spent a lot of sleepless nights 'round the campfire
    They had mountains on their minds

    Well , those high plains people
    They're different somehow
    You spent your life leaning into a hard wind
    I guess, you're less likely to take a bow

    All these stories buried out here
    They're calling to me
    Like the earthquakes in California
    Like the hills back in Tennessee

    I gotta circle back and touch something near
    Find out which way to go just to get on out of here
    I lost my thread and I've lost some time
    But it takes a lot of ground for me to change my mind

    Well, it's ninety nine in Topeka
    The wind is blowin' hot
    Blowin' through my oldest daughter's hair
    With everything else I forgot

    I drove her out to college
    Drove back through an empty space
    Thinkin' back to when she was a baby
    Tryin' hard to see that face

    I gotta circle back and touch something near
    Find out which way to go just to get on out of here
    Well, I lost my thread and I've lost some time
    But it takes a lot of ground for me to change my mind

    Two kids up and at 'em
    One more left at home
    She's a spark plug, a real fire cracker
    And in four years she'll be gone

    They just blow through your life
    Like the wind on the plains
    Like the dust that covers everything
    'Til the rivers fill with rain

    I gotta circle back and touch something near
    Find out which way to go just to get on out of here
    Well, I lost my thread and I've lost some time
    But it takes a lot of ground for me to change my mind

    Ohh, yeah, I got to circle back
    I got to circle back, I got to circle back
    I got to, got to, got to, got to, got to
    Got to, got to, got to circle back
