Truth and consequences close behind us
take the rockies by surprise
and old coyotes warn early mornings of
wild horses in desquise

won't you take me through the mountains
towards the oregon trial
and say goodbye to Colorado
front my heart I wish you well

we missed the magpie so we took a long drive
could not get far enough away
tracked through the deep snow and turned up the radio
and toasted outside santa fe

won't you take me
through the mountains
towards the oregon line.
say goodbye to Colorado
fare the well good friend of mine

woke up in Idaho and it was twenty three below
we walked out as far as we could stand
I watched you in your black coat as you photographed the hills a rollin
count to three and when we ran
