Lyrics

she's why we're here
we're here to celebrate
the day of her birth ninety years ago
when there were no cell phones
there was no internet
there weren't many cars
but there were still trains
and trees and stars and honeybees
fifteen cents each for the movies

she's a glistening wave on Storm Lake
she's a blue heron perched on a dune
she's a dustpan discovered
beauty recovered
really seeing things that go unseen
oh how we love you, Barbara Jean

she's why we're here
we're here to celebrate
the day of her birth ninety years ago
her pictures and her poetry
her sons and daughters
her easy laughter's been heard 90 years
and trees and stars and honeybees
snow caught fire on the prairie
