Patty Griffin – No More Pioneers lyrics

I wonder when the summer started smellin' so bad
He woke up one morning and it seemed that way
He thought of that woman and it got him so mad
-- had to hold him to keep him away
There had to be something he could do about this
Then the feeling came on him like a shot
As soon as the woman -- taken
From me every last thing I got

Tell me, where do we go from here
Tell me, where do we go from here
There ain't no more pioneers
And the pain is so clear

His heart is beating fast as a child's
Those voices from his past, they were calling
They were saying what they always
Do to get him more riled
He opens the door and starts falling
Then the call comes through on 9-1-1
And got him --, just another day baby
Then this woman starts screaming that he's got a gun
He's gonna blow her and her children all away

Can you tell me, where do we go from here
Tell me, where do we go from here
There ain't no more pioneers
And the pain is so clear

Policemen are down in the parking lot
And they'll come running, baby
When they hear the first shot
They're gonna kick down the door
And hear it ring twice
Here's your one last chance
To do somethin' nice

Can you tell me, where do we go from here
Tell me, where do we go from here
There ain't no more pioneers
And the pain is so clear
I wonder when the summer started
I wonder when the summer started
I wonder when the summer started
Smellin' so bad, baby
