I guess hed rather be in Colorado
Hed rather spend his time out where the sky looks like a pearl after the rain
Once again to see him walkin
Once again to hear him talkin
To the stars he makes and askin them for bus fares
I guess hed rather be in Colorado
Hed rather play his banjo in the morning when the moon is scarcely gone
In the dawn the subways comin
In the dawn I hear him comin
Some old song he wrote of love in Boulder Canyon
Guess hed rather be in Colorado
Guess hed rather be in Colorado
Guess hed rather work out where the only thing you earn is what you spend
In the end Im in his office
In the end a quiet cough is all he has to show
He lives in New York City

Word and music by Bill Danoff and Taffy Nivert

I also saw that song being performed by Merle Haggard at the end of the mini-series Centennial. Well done and appropriate.
