The western prairie stretches far away from home
Lose your troubles in the big sky
Thought I’d move along like the ranchers do
Stake a claim on a quiet space or two
Miles away, still I recall your face
And your lines
I once resided in a place
Where riverboats lined up the big muddy shore
Until I couldn’t stand my sunny South anymore

Tonight I want to be a strong Colorado woman
I don’t want to be your Mississippi girl
There are times I need you to hold on to
But this time I got to hold on by myself

I tumbled with the dustbowls
Across the Oklahoma plain
Headed westward towards the mountains and the rain
The meadow of the timberline
With your image still haunting my mind

Tonight I want to be a strong Colorado woman
I don’t want to be your Mississippi girl
There are times I need you to hold on to
But this time I got to hold on by myself

Take me down
Take me down
Won’t you please melt me down
But let me up
Help me up
I want back on my feet again

I’m going where the Rockies and the river collide
Formed like a woman stretched across the great divide
Far from the land I betrayed
And what would be the price if I stayed

Tonight I want to be a strong Colorado woman
I don’t want to be your Mississippi girl
There are times I need you to hold on to
But this time I got to hold on by myself
By myself
