Another Colorado (Album Version)

Another Colorado (Album Version)

Jimmie Dale Gilmore

Down by the banks of the Colorado
My true love and I one night did lie
And we laughed and played and made fun
Of the entire world spinning 'round the sun
Down by the banks of the Colorado

Up from the banks of the Colorado
Nightwatchmen stood guard 'round the wagon yard
And I took a pillar for a sign
That the salt of the earth was surely mine
Up from the banks of the Colorado

There is another Colorado
Wise have told me, wise women too
That I may find sweet El Dorado
Down by the banks of one sweet Colorado

Down by the banks of the Colorado
The years flowed softly before my eyes
And the circus joined me in my quest
And stayed with me throughout my test
Down by the banks of the Colorado

There is another Colorado
Wise men have told me, wise women too
That I may find my sweet El Dorado
Down by the banks of one sweet Colorado
