TELLURIDE

Throw the paper on the steps
Then run away if you haven’t yet
Gone for ages gone for good
It has been a while as it should
Telluride, Telluride, Telluride

People talking trash
Soon to become ash
Nobody asked to be here
Sun’s going down over yonder
And I wonder
I may be lost, but I can see here
Telluride, Telluride, Telluride

Harvest moon is rising
We’ll be up all night
There ain’t nothing new
Under this ancient light
For days I have been wandering
Wondering all about
What it’s gonna take
To finally get me out
Telluride, Telluride, Telluride

I’ve dressed up in poems
And I’ve ridden on the rails
I’ve seen picture postcards
And draped them in the sails
White ones they go blue
Red ones go all green
One thing that I’m sure of
It’s never the way that it seems
Telluride, Telluride, Telluride

Oh, sweet sister come here
I’ve got some news for you
There’s someone out there waiting
And he’s waiting just on you
As for me I’m surely
Gonna miss my kiss from you
But I don’t wanna spend eternity
Trying to make you blue
Telluride, Telluride, Telluride
