Chris LeDoux Western Skies Lyrics

sponsored links
The nashville friends think iâm strange to make my home out on the range

Think itâs nothin? but a God forsaken land
Why donât you bring your guitar and family, move on down to tennesse
Well, I just smile because they donât understand
But if they ever saw a sunrise on a mountain mornin?
Watched those cotton candy clouds roll by
Theyâd 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, ainât a better place for my kids to grow

Just turn îem loose in the western summer time
And if you ever held your woman on a summerâs evening
While the prairie moon was blazin? in her eyes
Youâd know why I live beneath these western skies

You ainât lived until youâve watched those northern lights
Set around the campfire and hear the coyotes call at night
Makes you feel alright

Verse 3

So guess iâll stay right where iâm at, wear my boots and my cowboy hat
But iâll come and see ya once in a while
Iâll bring my guitar and sing my songs, sorry if I donât stay too long
I love tennessee but ya know itâs 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
