(Kellie Coffey/Wayne Kirkpatrick)

Maybe it was me who said that I would wait forever
Yeah,but it was you who said it wouldn't take that long
I sleep alone and wonder if you're comin' back

(So)Baby,why Wyoming
For another day and then one more
Do you think you'll ever find what you're lookin' for
Tell me why Wyoming,why so far from me
Why not here,why not home in Tennessee

Well you didn't find your golden dream in sunny California,oh
No revelation blaze across that Oklahoma sky
You move on with your reasons but no good excuse
For risking all we stand to lose

(So)Baby,why Wyoming
For another day and then one more
Do you think you'll ever find what you're lookin' for
Tell me why Wyoming,why so far from me
Why not here,why not home in Tennessee

Every moment that you're gone I feel you further away
But I wasn't gonna be to hold you back or make you stay,oh
Anywhere you go I know you'll find
No one's ever gonna love you like I do

So tell me why Wyoming,yeah
Tell me why Wyoming
Why so far from me
Why not here,why not home in Tennessee
Yeah,why not here
Why not home in Tennessee

    My husband worked in wyoming while in the oilfield and i stayed at home in texas. I didnt understand why he always had to work far away. But now that we are divorced i realize that he was just following his passion( work). I guess i just wished i could have been his passion.
