Jackson's down in a hole in Wyoming.
He had a wife once,
Or at least that's what he told me.
Drank his last one when he felt the walls start folding in.

And his old car got 35 tears to the mile 'til he had to fill her up again.

Mary had a baby named Earnest.
She carried him over by the furnace
And buried the feelings that burn us all.

Earnest he grew up just like his dad, a little wild and a little tall.

Well Earnest, he has dreams about his father
standing up against a mountain full of water.
Well, he bears his chest and the mountains grow taller and black.

And they split wide and wash old Jackson south and the burden off of Mary's back

Nothing's gonna break these blues
Waking up to the Colorado news.
Nothing's gonna break these blues
Waking up to the Colorado news.
