Lyrics:
Dakota farmland, tabletop flat,
Is where Billy and I grew up at
Billy was my friend since we were ten,
So I guess I never thought about it much back then
That we both looked up to this farm boy Beau,
Tall and strong from shoveling snow and baling hay,
His big blue eyes were clear and bright as the prairie sky

The heart wants to go where the heart wants to go
And you can't undo it
Billy never told me so but I just knew it
Billy loved Beau

Beau won best goat at the 4H fair,
And I went to state for my pie with pears
For raising a pig Billy won something too,
And we all got to go on a trip to the zoo
Beau and Billy,
They laughed and laughed the whole way there and the whole way back
Billy put his arm around his bud and said "Beau, I sure had fun".
The heart wants to go where the heart wants to go
And you can't undo it
Billy never told me so but I just knew it
Billy loved Beau
Right out of school Billy just packed
Everything in his pickup and never came back
Full scholarship in Chicago,
Made a lot of himself since twenty years ago
We haven't seen hyde nor hair of Beau;
Last we heard he's still with the rodeo
He never got married, heard through the grapevine,
But he broke a lot of hearts
Including Billy's and mine
The heart wants to go where the heart wants to go
And you can't undo it
Billy never told me so but I just knew it
The heart wants to go where the heart wants to go
And you can't undo it
Billy never told me so but I just knew it
Billy loved Beau
