Heading for Taos

 

Image result for rocky mountains

 

 

Long, long ago took my friend for a ride

With my heart in my hand said “Let’s leave it behind,”

The country is broader a thousand miles west

And we won’t know our strength til we’re put to the test

.

We drove out of the shade in the mountains we knew

And across field and forest where great cities grew

The highway was straight before us, you know

The valleys exalted, the hills were made low

.

And we watched the earth’s sky get more and more blue

And felt prairie winds toss the old Chevy II

Across the big river and across the divide

Our eyes were wide open, our hearts full inside

.

In days we saw on the far away view

Those Rockies we’d read all about in our school

We turned mud into bricks there and thus we were fed

And we sat in cool sunsets while the mountains turned red
