Gettin’ the Morning On …

“Wildfire” is a classic song written in 1975 by Michael Martin Murphey and Larry Cansler.

“The lyrics are the ruminations of a homesteader who has become much disillusioned with farming and obsessed with the ghost of a young Nebraska woman said to have died searching for her escaped pony, “Wildfire”, during a blizzard. The homesteader hopes to catch up with the ghost mounted on her pony, and with them to escape from farming, which he bitterly calls sod busting.” -Wikipedia
