Chris LeDoux Western Skies Lyrics

Last updated: 09/16/2008 11:00:00 AM

My Nashville friends think I'm strange to make my home out on the range

Think it's nothin' but a God-forsaken land
Why don't you bring your guitar and family, move on down to Tennesse
Well, I just smile because they don't understand
But if they ever saw a sunrise on a mountain mornin'
Watched those cotton candy clouds go by
They'd know why I live beneath these Western Skies

Verse 2

I got peace of mind and elbow room I love the smell of sage in bloom
Catch a rainbow on my fishin' line
We got county fairs and rodeos, ain't a better place for my kids to grow

Just turn 'em loose in the western summer time
And if you ever held your woman on a summer's evening
While the prairie moon was blazin' in her eyes
You'd know why I live beneath these Western Skies


Bridge:
You ain't lived until you've watched those Northern Lights
Sat around the campfire and hear the coyotes call at night
Makes you feel alright


Verse 3

So guess I'll stay right where I'm at, wear my boots and my cowboy hat
But I'll come and see ya once in a while
I'll bring my guitar and sing my songs, sorry if I don't stay too long
I love Tennessee but ya know it just not my style
I gotta be where I can see those Rocky Mountains
Ride my horse and watch an eagle fly
I gotta live my life and write my songs beneath these Western Skies


When I die you can bury me beneath these Western Skies, Yippee-ay!
