​Colorado

This song is by Chris LeDoux and appears on the album Songs of Rodeo Life (1971).

I look out to the east of the Colorado sky
The canyons are throwin' dust in the storms eye
And the storms gettin' angry I know that it's so
It's fixin' to blow a little more of Colorado

It seems to be a twister as the clouds begin to cry
And there goes momma clothesline leavin' on the fly
Here come the rain drops ten thousand four
It's gonna wash away our little part of Colorado

The mules are gettin' restless it's hard to keep 'em shy
Don't they know they've got to get us to the other side
The fence is fallin' down and the barns about to go
As I watch the storm take away my part of Colorado

Most of all we won our lives and that's a fact
And what little we're taking the wind wants it back
Run, momma run, and try to get the mules to go
And God help us get the hell away from Colorado

I look out to the east of the Colorado sky
The canyons are throwin' dust in the storms eye
And the storms gettin' angry I know that it's so
It's fixin' to blow a little more of Colorado
