Sorry can't find the words but I noticed it is available on Gene Autry CDs at a number of sites. Dust was written by Gene Autry and Johnny Marvin in 1937. Hope this might help you in your search.

Here's what it SOUNDs LIKE to me!

DUST
Gene Autry
Writers: Gene Autry & Johnny Marvin

DUST! DUST!
DUST in the sky
DUST on the trail
DUST in my eyes
DUST! DUST!
Cant see the sun
Can't find my way
The DUST has won
Cattle and the sheep
Bedded down to sleep
Seem to realize their fate
Buzzards in the sky
Know the time is nigh
Will they fly away, away?

Oh Lord! Please ease my pain
Oh Lord! Where is your rain
And sunshine?
DUST! DUST!
DUST must I be!
Can this be eternity?
Oh Lord! Have mercy on poor me.

Louis

Any more info? What you've got so far makes it possible but time-consuming.

I think it may be one of the Woodie Guthrie songs on the info so far, but have nothing conclusive.

Cheers!
Ian

Dust, dust, dust in the sky
Dust on the trail, dust in my eyes
Dust, dust, cant see the sun
Cant find my way the dust has won.

Cattle and the sheep, bedded down to sleep
Seem to realize their fate,
Buzzards in the sky know the time is nigh
Will they fly away or wait?

thats all I can recall after 50 years!

Dust,dust, dust in the sky
dust in the trail,
Dust in my eyes.
Dust, dust Can't see the sun,
Can't find my way the dust has won.
The cattle and the sheep, bedded down to sleep,
seem to realize their fate,
The VULTURES in the sky, know the time is nigh,
Will they fly away or wait?


Oh Lord! Please head my pain,
Oh, Lord! Where is your rain and Sunshine!
Dust, dust must it be
Can this be Eternity!

Here was a home, where the buffalo roamed
Where the deer and the antelope played.
Here was a place where the cattle would graze,
Upon an alfalfa all day
Where on the ranches the cow-punchin' crowd,
What has become of the rain?
Out of the blue came a threatening cloud,
Causing this awful change.

Oh, Lord! Please head my pain!
Oh, Lord Where is your rain
And Sunshine?
Dust, dust Must it be,
Can this be eternity?
Oh, Lord, have mercy on poor me!

Here's first verse on youtube. It sounds like "Please ease my pain" in the chorus, though.

The entire movie is here.

The song starts at 40:30. The second verse has a different melody, incorporating "Home, home on the range."

Let's see if we can put all the interpretations and corrections together. I'm not quite sure of everything, but I think this is pretty close. Please post any corrections below, and I'll add them.

DUST (movie version)
(Johnny Marvin)

Dust,dust, dust in the sky,
Dust on the trail,
Dust in my eyes.
Dust, dust, can't see the sun,
Can't find my way, the dust has won.
The cattle and the sheep, bedded down to sleep,
Seem to realize their fate;
The vultures in the sky, know the time is nigh,
Will they fly away or wait?


Oh Lord! Please ease my pain.
Oh, Lord! Where is your rain and sunshine?
Dust, dust, must it be?
Can this be Eternity?

Here was the home, where the buffalo roamed,
Where the deer and the antelope played.
Here was the place where the cattle would graze,
The corn and alfalfa once swayed.
Where are the ranches, the cow-punching crowd,
What has become of the rain?
Out of the blue came a threatening cloud,
Causing this awful change.

Oh, Lord! Please ease my pain!
Oh, Lord, where is your rain and sunshine?
Dust, dust must it be,
Can this be eternity?
Oh, Lord, have mercy on poor me!


This song was the first one from a B-western to be nominated for an Oscar in its first appearance in Under Western Stars. "Dust" was recorded by Roy Rogers as a Vocalion single in March of 1938. Nine years later, he sang the song again, this time accompanied by the Sons of the Pioneers.


Sometimes, I think I hear "dust in the skies" in the first line. Also, could that be, "Lord, please heed my pain"? I tend to side with "ease."
