Rio Rey

album: Romancing the Moment (2005), track 3 of 23
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
Comes to life
Come sundown
From the cracks
In the land
Come the creatures
Without hands
     That wind it blows
     The tumbleweed south
     Out of Colorado
     To the pueblos of Taos
     And this old Dust Devil
     Beside the Grande says,
     Give up your drifting, Boy
     And live on the Rio Rey
   The river road
   To Santa Fe
