Lyrics








Colorado

We started out in Dallas
And we took a northern route
Got all the way through Denver
Before the water pump went out
With only twenty bucks between us
We knew our luck was at an end
It's lonely when you're far from home
Without family or friends

Colorado wasn't supposed to happen
But it did--here we are
We hitched a ride on a star to Montana
We didn't get quiet that far
I bought a second-hand pickup truck
I shoulda rented a brand new car
Colorado wasn't supposed to happen
But it did--here we are

I was too damn proud to ask for help
Daddy laughed at my old truck
If you think that thing'll reach Montana
You're dumber than a hockey puck
We lived a month in that old rust bucket
Working odd jobs that we found
Bought a brand new water pump
And was soon Montana-bound

But your roots had started growing
And you didn't want to roam
Cause Denver and Colorado
Were beginning to feel like home

On the northern edge of Denver
We decided to make our stand
We both got jobs, bought a house
And became big Bronco fans
Brewing beer in Fort Collins
I coulda done a whole lot worse
Had we made it to Montana
That might have been a curse

Colorado wasn't supposed to happen
But it did--here we are
We hitched a ride on a star to Montana
Didn't get quiet that far
I bought a second-hand pickup truck
Shoulda rented a brand new car
Colorado wasn't supposed to happen
But it did--here we are

Colorado wasn't supposed to happen
But it did--here we are


Charles Edmund Carter's songs will tug at your heartstrings.

This good country song about Colorado needs a new vocalist for shopping but could possibly be a plus if shopping to a country singer already under a recording contract looking for a ballad about Colorado. Try to shop it for TV Series and cable film release or even to the products produced in Colorado. I enjoyed the arrangement and musicians on this cut. I do wish to know your songwriting acquisition successes because I know there must be and the future looks good. God has given you the gifts to write and I do look forward to reviewing more of your work soon too. Thank you.
