"Wolves" as written by and Stephanie Davis....
January's always bitter
But Lord, this one beats all
The wind ain't quit for weeks now
And the drifts are ten feet tall
I been all night drivin' heifers
Closer in to lower ground
Then I spent the mornin' thinkin'
'Bout the ones the wolves pulled down
Charlie Barton and his family
Stopped today to say goodbye
He said the bank was takin' over
The last few years were just too dry
And I promised that I'd visit
When they found a place in town
Then I spent a long time thinkin'
'Bout the ones the wolves pull down
Lord, please shine a light of hope
On those of us who fall behind
And when we stumble in the snow
Could you help us up while there's still time?
Well, I don't mean to be complainin', Lord
You've always seen me through
And I know you got your reasons
For each and every thing you do
But tonight outside my window
There's a lonesome, mournful sound
And I just can't keep from thinkin'
'Bout the ones the wolves pull down
Oh Lord, keep me from bein'
The one the wolves pull down

    General CommentThis song gives me shivers every time I hear it. The first verse refers to actual wolves. He is moving his cattle and is talking about some that were eaten by wolves.

    In the second verse, wolves are a metaphor for debt, poverty, and creditors. His neighbor had to sell out his farm because of too many years of losses because of a drought.

    The third verse is the narrator being afraid that what happened to his neighbor will happen to him too. He hears wolves howling and he thinks about the predators in his own life. Bill collectors and taxes and such.
