Song Lyrics

«     »    

Larimer Street

album: Camel Rock (1995), track 3 of 13
author: Chuck Pyle, John Cable, & Jim Ratts
publisher: Bee 'n' Flower Music BMI

Just a bottle of Thunderbird
Don't go very far
Needs a little something more to pick up the beat
A quarter pack of KoolAid
Makes a jukebox in a jar
Music to lighten a cowboy's feet

So he can do that breadline waltz
For a cup of stew
Wondering if urban renewal is gonna renew him too
Broken down and busted up
His rodeo life is through
The Denver Rescue Mission to the rescue
   Cowboy bum
   Looking for some
   Jukebox for our beat
   Everybody's down on Larimer Street
   The future tense	
   Don't make any sense
   Buddy that's okay by me
   I just pawned my watch on Larimer Street
Raspberry KoolAid
Is all it's going to take
To make that bottle of wine stand and talk
It's the one sure-fire remedy
For the pain of an old heartache
Crown yourself king of the sidewalk
