Any desktop app that extracts keywords from referring URLs

It's 2011. There must be an app for that...

Apologies in advance if this is something that's been hashed over forever, and I'll gladly take my lumps if so.

So a client of mine has an analytics package set up that's capturing good referring URL data but not organic keyword data. What I have is lots and lots of referring URLs from organic search engines, but the precious keyword data is still "locked up" inside those URLs.

I'm thinking, "Hey, it's 2011, there *must* be some desktop app out there that'll take a column of search engine referrer data and then extract the keywords into a new column." However, so far I'm striking out.

What say you, Webmaster World sages?

If this technically isn't a "website technology" issue, would someone be so kind to point me to a forum (here or "abroad") where this question might have a shot at getting answered?

I would think the Website Analytics - Tracking and Logging forum would be the place to ask.
