I was raised, born and bred in a praire town
When a dark eyed woman really laid the feelings down
We were one, had our fun in our younger years
Well I remember damn well she loved me
And she remembers damn well she cared

Stonegates, closing me in
If I get free won't see me again
Stonegates, wish I could be
Back in the country, wish I was free

I was down, leaving town on a midnight train
When a long legged woman come walking down platform A
She was lean, made a scene as she came my way
Well we traveled on down through the midwest towns
In Chicago we parted ways

Stonegates, closing me in
If I get free won't see me again
Stonegates, wish I could be
Back in the country, wish I was free

Stonegates, closing me in
If I get free won't see me again
Stonegates, wish I could be
Back in the country, wish I was free

I was down, leaving town on a midnight train
When a long legged woman come walking down platform A
She was lean, made a scene as she came my way
Well we traveled on down through the midwest towns
In Chicago we parted ways

Stonegates, closing me in
If I get free won't see me again
Stonegates, wish I could be
Back in the country, wish I was free

Move around town
