Grizzly Bear (lyrics)

1
Whoa when I woke up this morning
She was gone - solid gone
when I woke up this morning
She was gone - solid gone
I used to love to watch her dance the Western Swing
The Two Step and the Buck and Wing
when I woke up this morning She was gone - solid gone

2
I looked for her up and down the Mississippi
Mississippi
I asked her dad could she have gone hunting, he said mebbe
I went upriver up to Bemidji
Where people go to hunt when the itch gets itchy
when I woke up this morning She was gone -

3
When I got to Bemidji
here's the deal
My darling she was gone in a snowmobile
The man she was with he was Canadian
They're the ones who use a snowmobile
To put a lady in
When I woke up this morning she was gone solid gone

4
I followed their trail to International Falls
Where all of the brass monkeys have artificial parts
I looked around the Falls and I felt horrid
When they said she had gone to Fargo-Moorhead
When I woke up this morning
She was gone, solid gone

5
I drove to Moorhead
Across from Fargo
Driving just as fast as I could make that car go
I prayed to the Lord, O Lord who watchest her
Please don't let him take her off to Rochester
When I woke up this morning she was gone

6
Did I tell you my darling she was gone
She was gone
Did I mention it was this morning
Before dawn
And her disappearance was a very hot topic
In Blue Earth, Brainerd and Biwabik
when I woke up this morning
She was gone - solid gone

7
Now I'm living by myself up near St. Cloud
Near St. Cloud
In a monastery where women are not allowed
I've given up on the female gender
I went on Facebook to unfriend her
When I woke up this morning she was gone
Solid gone

She was gone - solid gone
She was gone - solid gone
