The Buffalo Skinners is the sixth studio album by the Scottish band Big Country, released in 1993. Two songs, "We're Not In Kansas" and "Ships", are re-recordings of songs from their previous album. The difference is more noticeable on "Ships" which features heavy use of guitars (in contrast to the guitar-free 1991 version). The album featured two UK top 30 hits, "Alone" (N. 4) and "Ships" (N. 9). All tracks written by Stuart Adamson; except where noted.

Lyrics to "Buffalo Skinners" song by Big Country: Out beyond the river where you and I would ride We would skin the buffalo, the last ones left alive. And somewhere she is calling out on a scarlet plain But I no longer hear her, I grew out of those games I never skinned a buffalo, I never even killed That's why I spend my Sunday standing still. Sure we could have We could have got it right Sure we could have We could have got it right.

Extra Tracks, Import, Remastered. The Buffalo Skinners. Features 12 tracks including 'Alone', 'Seven Ways', 'The One I Love', & 'All Go Together' plus the 4 bonus tracks 'The One I Love' (US mix), 'Never Take Your Place', 'Eastworld' & 'Buffalo Skinners' (demo).

This song wasn't on the album called "Buffalo Skinners". Fantastic guest Bobby Valentino on the violin. bout describes it!!! and I don't swearxx. Stuart, Mark,Tony and Bruce at their best, for me one of the best Big Country gigs ever. The without a safety tour was top too as was sod it just one hell of a band. criminally they should have been huge . 5 years назад. had this on audio for a few years . he was the musical equal of anyone in that time.
