Rio Rey

album: Endless Sky (1993), track 1 of 12
author: Chuck Pyle
publisher: Bee 'n' Flower Music BMI

Painters come for the light 
Falling from a cobalt sky 
Sienna red, thirsty green 
Dusty river in between
   Just a regular day
   On the Rio Rey
   The River Road
   To Santa Fe
Everything underground 
Comes to life come sundown 
From the cracks in the land 
Come the creatures without hands
     The wind it blows
     The tumbleweed south 
     Out of Colorado
     To the pueblos of Taos
     This old dust devil 
     Beside the Grande
     Says, "Give up your driftin', boy,
     And live on the Rio Rey."
The River Road
To Santa Fe
