    From what I imagine, it seems like an older, wiser man referring to younger men (generationally) coming to try and either make what they think will be a quick buck, for work they think they can handle, maybe working in the mines. And/or playing around with a girl's heart from that town. Inevitably, things are much harder than they expected, perhaps even died in a mine shaft due to inexperience (wyoming will be your new home). Or, if pregnancy occurred and they ran away from it, the responsibility to raise the now fatherless child, (and help a young girl mend her heart) falls on the people of the town.
