Lyrics

Seems like I'm compelled toward Colorado
Yet, trouble always seems to find me there
I remember a night stuck in Durango
A Reservation Girl, caught me in her snare

Portland always makes me think of Buddy
How he found God and said he'd pray for me
I said " I didn't know that He was missin'
I swear I saw Him just last week in Aberdeen."

I'm so tired, of singing all these sad songs
I'm so tired, of singing all these sad, sad, songs

I recall a night in Tulsa, Oklahoma
I met a dancing girl and yeah, she took me home
More than love I think that she just wanted answers
And me to sing to her so she wouldn't feel alone

But I'm so tired, of singing all these sad songs
I'm so tired, of singing all these sad, sad, songs
Let's start a fire, bright as the midnight sun
Let's start a fire, we'll burn everything, that'll never be
And all that has gone wrong

She said "Why don't you write anything that's happy?"
I smiled but I didn't say a word
Her ex-husband was up in Cincinnati
And he took their only daughter from her

Maybe I'll find me a house somewhere in Nowhere
Get me a dog, maybe a front porch and a swing
I'll sit neath the stars, hum a few bars
Then quietly I'll begin to sing
That I'm so tired....
