Album Notes
Remastered and outtakes of the folk/rock "Far Eastern Psychedelic Spaghetti Western" musical experience, "Princess of the Rodeo". W. Dire Wolff made the album, "Princess of the Rodeo", with some well known Marin and Sonoma County musicians. These songs were written in Buffalo's Bill's hotel suite during a week stay in Cody, Wyoming. "Old Gravel Roads" was the last of the 12 songs written during that week. It is a reflection on the changes of culture in America's rural Western states.

Old Gravel Roads
a. Written in Cody, Wyoming
b. A folk song about the paving of America’s roadways, and a reflection on the changes of the world around them.

Pretty Nice Girl (part two)
a. Written in Cody, Wyoming
b. Western Ballad about a bar room gunfight on a Saturday Night
c. The song sounds like it was performed by a small band of musical cowboys.
d. The exciting conclusion to part one of the song from the album "Princess of the Rodeo"

Whisper in the Wind
a. Written in Cody, Wyoming
b. A quiet poetic word garden about a magic world in a mysterious mountain forest.
c. This is a folk song with finger style sounding acoustic guitars, accompanying a romantic folk vocal.

Old gravel roads Not many now are left
They brag about their changes
But all I see is death
They turn us on our neighbors
When they need a helping hand
I'm on my knees now praying

Have mercy on this land.
Old gravel roads
Now so hard to find
The things I took for granted
Now seem another time
I tried to grow up straight and true
And be a honest man
But the way these folks are acting I'll never understand.

And this ain't what I bargained for
When I was just a boy
I thought this land was great and true
Not something to destroy.

It was something to believe in
Something great and strong
The time has come for another change
But we can't wait too long....
