LETRA Colorado, Colorado When the world leaves you shivering And the blizzard blows, When the snow flies and the night falls There's a light in the window and a place called home At the end of the storm.
One night on the mountain I was headed for Estes When the roads turned to ice and it started to snow, Put on the chains in a whirl of white powder, Half way up to Berthoud near a diner I know And the light burned inside, shining down through the snowfall God it was cold and the temperature droppin', Went in for coffee and shivered as I drank it, Warm in my hands in the steam as it rose.
Sitting there at the counter was a dark headed stranger, Me and the owner and him keepin warm, Nodded hello and I said it's a cold one Looks like there might be a blizzard tonight – And "yes", said the owner," There's a big storm on the mountain, Good thing we're open, we could be here for hours There's nothing for miles and it's too late to get to Denver, Better not try for the summit tonight".
And the snow fell And the night passed And I talked to the strangers While the blizzard blew.
Me and the stranger, you know I don't talk to strangers, I'm a private sort of person but a blizzard is a blizzard, And somehow I found myself saying you'd left me, Tellin' him everything I wanted to say to you.
You know how it is when you can talk to a stranger, Someone your quite sure you'll never see again – Soon we were laughin', and talkin', and drinkin' He said "you must know you're too good for him".
And the snow fell And the night passed And I talked to the stranger While the blizzard blew.
The stranger said "Love it can cry you a river – Me, I'm a loner cause I can't take the heartache And sometimes I'm a fighter when I get too much whiskey – Here have a little whiskey, pretend you don't give a damn – My cabin's up here on the side of the mountain You can go up there and sleep through the blizzard".
I put on my parka, said goodbye to the owner Followed the stranger through the snow up the mountainside.
Woke in the morning to the sun on the snow, My car was buried in six feet of snow drifts, They dug me out, just the owner and the stranger, Sent me on my way when the snowplow had been by And the roads were all clear and the sun on the mountains Sparkled like diamonds on the peak to peak highway – Then I knew that I would get over you, knew you could leave me But you'd never break me.
Colorado, Colorado When the world leaves you shivering And the blizzard blows, When the snow flies and the night falls There's a light in the window and a place called home At the end of the storm. fuente: musica.com
