Lyrics

Snow Falls On Denver

Written By: E.B. Anderson

When Snow Falls on Denver I'll be up on my way
Another migration down another lost highway
Another winter coming on, another storm to stay
Houston's warmth was in my mind, but Colorado has her ways

I held up in a lonesome house, of ill repute I'm told
But ill or not, I was treated like gold
A wise man was tending bar, prophets were playing banjos
A gambler woo'ed, and I felt I was home

Snow Falls on Denver, again tonight
But I'm warm and I'm sheltered, 'neath the cold neon lights
I'm safe here in her arms, of ill repute
The snow falls on Denver, on this cold winter night

This Barmaid keeps good company, with her yellow shining hair
the music that's bouncing off the walls, sullies my cares
The wind outside is blowing cold, but I'm safe in my thoughts of old
but as the nighttime is racing from the sky, I know I'm alone

Snow falls on Denver, again tonight
But I'm warm and I'm sheltered, 'neath the cold neon lights
I'm safe here in her arms, Of ill repute
As the snow falls on Denver, on this cold winter night
As the snow falls on Denver, on this cold winter night

Train Roll On

Written By: E.B. Anderson

Rolling down a railroad line, the wind upon my back
looking back on your town, down the railroad tracks
staring at the mountain lines, and what I've left behind
soon the day will fade to black like everything in time

I've travelled all around this land, Kansas, Kalamazoo
Houston down to New Orleans, been to Chicago too
Manhattan down to Allentown, Lord I've been around
No place was ever strong enough to keep me down so

Train Roll On, Sing your lonesome song
to another stretch of town, a place where I can settle down
and forget about the world and I can try to change so
Train Roll On, sing your lonesome song
to another stretch of town a place where I can settle down and Move on

Sometimes I acted like a child, Lord I thought I knew
But now I know never did, ever see the truth
I clouded up my mind, foolish in my eyes
I'll blame it on myself I guess, told not tried

(chorus)

If you see me hanging round, dirty in my rags
take no pity on me boys, I wear em like my flag
and if our paths should cross girl, know that I care too
Don't fall in love to quickly cause I'm only passing through

(Chorus)

Broken Down Horse

Written By: E.B. Anderson

If I ever get out of this place
I'm gonna climb high
And look down on all creation
And rest my bones for a while

Pride is an ignorant thing,
it'll lead you astray
Lift you up higher than high,
then wreck you and waste you away

Quicksilver daydreams are fleeting
Your hero winds up a clown
You think you might reach out and touch them
but the walls come tumbling down

If I ever see you again
I'm gonna try to walk on by
'cause I know you deserve more
than this old broken down horse

Ten years a slave to my wont
A prisoner without a cell
A sinner in the arms of angels
A saint in circle of hell

If ever see you again
I'll try to walk on by
'Cause I know you deserve more
than this old broken down horse

If I ever get out of this place
I'm gonna climb high
and look down on all creation
Rest my bones for a while.
