The King of Colorado

 

Song lyrics by Chrome Dome Mike Kimbro

 

Please read along to my Spoken Verse Performance.

 

 

VERSE 1 Ė Option A (Denver - Blender)

 

I left Dakota

 

For a future

 

Down in Denver.

 

 

And I followed

 

My need

 

For a Rocky

 

Mountain high.

 

 

But Iíve decided

 

I donít mind mixing

 

With a blender.

 

 

So Iím packing up

 

And should be home

 

By Mid-July.

 

 

VERSE 1 Ė Option B  (Colder - Boulder)

 

I left Dakota

 

When it started

 

To get colder.

 

 

And I followed

 

My need

 

For a rocky

 

Mountain high.

 

 

But my dreams

 

Are dryiní up

 

Here in Boulder.

 

 

Iím packing up

 

And should be home

 

By Mid-July.

 

 

CHORUS

 

Mile after mile

 

Iím on the highway,

 

In my

 

Winnebego.

 

 

But my heart

 

Is in the Bakken

 

Exclusively.

 

 

While I may

 

Never

 

Be the King of

 

Colorado.

 

 

Iíll know Iíve made it

 

When Iím a North Plains

 

Celebrity.

 

 

VERSE 2

 

You know the roughnecks

 

In Dakota

 

Donít always like me.

 

 

Cause their ladies

 

Get excited

 

When I sing.

 

 

But they donít know

@  So I tell them

 

That theyíre so luck-y.

@  Theyíre the one thatís luck-y.

 

 

Cause no Bakken

 

Beauty wants to

 

Wear my ring.

 

 

CHORUS

 

Mile after mile

 

Iím on the road,

 

In my

 

Winnebego.

 

 

But my heart

 

Is in the Bakken

 

Exclusively.

 

 

While I may

 

Never

 

Be the King of

 

Colorado

 

 

Iíll know Iíve made it

 

When Iím a North Plains

 

Celebrity.
