Lyrics: Farmers got some cheap land Bought it around the plains, they all had some big plans (but) they over plowed all their fields Took out all the topsoil, and deep-rooted grasses Yeah, they thought the plow would bring rain But rain never came, and this lasted for years 1930s, the wind picked up And it darkened the sky, and it wouldn’t let up All the citizens move away from the Plains You better run, better run, outrun the dust All the citizens move away from the Plains You better run, better run, before the dust comes All the citizens move away from the Plains You better run, better run, outrun the dust All the citizens move away from the Plains You better run, better run, before the dust comes The Dust Bowl made for dark days It would it make seem late, in the middle of days And it made the air hard to breathe Could not escape Black Blizzards even going inside And they would travel miles You could see the Dust Bowl as far as New York City Forced thousands to ‘bandon farms The Okies left everything to head to California All the citizens move away from the Plains You better run, better run, outrun the dust All the citizens move away from the Plains You better run, better run, before the dust comes All the citizens move away from the Plains You better run, better run, outrun the dust All the citizens move away from the Plains You better run, better run, before the dust comes MrBettsClass Phillip DeFranco parody about the Underground Railroad and Gold Rush: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cDjB7uCL464
