lyrics

Oh oh Joanna
I’d never feed ya bananas
Let’s take a week for Red Rocks and whiskey
And have the good times we both have been missin

1st verse:

See a diamond in the bright June night
Colorado front range on fire
Liquor tongues try and trip my aim
But this star always cuts the screen
7-figure-couples paint the town
Dressin fancy, throwin money round
But you and I, we’re high on a shoestring
Takin rides and flyin on a freebee yeah

CHORUS:

Oh oh Joanna
I’d never feed ya bananas
Let’s take a week for Red Rocks and whiskey
And have the good times we both have been missin

2nd Verse:

Oh what a mean old man winter has been
It’s time to step outside and feel again
Over the valley and deep in the canyon
Is where you’ll find me and my dancin: sunshine, sunshine, sunshine
Sunshine, star-shine, sunshine, starshine

We crashin floors when the heat is down
Ain’t no trouble, we got friends around
Cause all my boys and all my girls they know
What it’s like to be away from home
Takin showers in a mountain creek
Gunny River wash away the sleep
Skip the tips and go grocery shop
Eat a picnic on a mountaintop

3rd Verse:

Well all is here and I’m goin leave it there
In fact today I got no underwear
Woke up this mornin, the sky was a cathedral
Flingin frisbees and catchin em is Leo
Jumpin waterfalls and sinkin deep
Sippin hops with a touch of green
After sunset and down in the city
At Quixote’s, well that’s where you’ll see me, yeah
