Song Lyrics

«     »    


album: Higher Ground - Songs of Colorado (2007), track 1 of 13
author: Chuck Pyle
publisher: Bee 'n' Flower Music BMI

I came as a young man
A refugee from the plains
I was looking for higher ground
Where the sun shines
through the rain
Where the mountain folks
And the old cowpokes
Have found a peace of mind
I guess loving Mother Nature
Makes you naturally kind
   Everywhere I go
   I'm in your shadow
   And you're calling to me
   The sun melts the snow
   And makes the rivers flow
   To the sea
Say good-bye to Denver
Out across the Divide
The last day of September
Such a fine day for a ride
It's a Buena Vista morning
A Durango afternoon
'Round a Mesa Verde campfire
We'll be humming this tune
     There's a warm winter sun
     In the window of your car
     Now do you know
     where you are?
