San Luis Valley Song

Thunder on the mountain, travel on the tracks
Wind kicks up the sand dunes at my back
Blue sky like a blanket, shaking out the dust
I’m looking for some green against the rust
Ah-ee-oo-oo-oo

I can hear the winter moaning mean and low
Not much left to do here for I go
But every amber sunset, every desert flower
Keeps me holding faster to each hour

So I’ll sing “The Pinto Pony,”
Tell a story by the fire
Of the gypsy and the cowboy and desire
Ah-ee-oo-oo-oo
Ah-ee-oo-oo-oo

Stars look down in wonder at the beauty of it all
Wanting just to be here they will fall
And if I could catch one for you and hold it in my hand
It couldn’t be as perfect as this land

So I’ll sing “The Pinto Pony,”
Tell a story by the fire
Of the gypsy and the cowboy and desire
Ah-ee-oo-oo-oo
Ah-ee-oo-oo-oo
