North Dakota Oil

North Dakota Oil

WRITTEN BY: CAMERON BLAKE

Wipe that oil from your cheek North Dakota
‘Cause Uncle Sam is striking up the band
Roll that penny in the street North Dakota
To the wishing well in the bottom of your pan

I walk against the one-way streets in North Dakota
As the lonely boy’s still shooting up a can
Raising kid’s like raising hell in North Dakota
With the pioneers before it all hit the fan

Take your time undressing me
Mmm… Take your time to stare
Beat your swords into plowshares North Dakota
‘Til the oil flows like honey through the land

Sing those prairie songs out here North Dakota
For the unemployed and the uninhibited man
Well I can’t find a bit to chew in North Dakota
Only lilies bloomin’ in the cold black river sand

Take your time undressing me
Mmm…. Take your time to stare
Beat your swords into plowshares North Dakota
Where the oil flows like ribbons in your hair
