Story behind the song
A friend of ours moved to Colorado chasing a woman. They broke up, she got married but he stayed there. The rest is all my imagination. This would be for a male vocal.
Lyrics
THANK YOU COLORADO Drove to Colorado for a woman But stayed in spite of her She moved on when she married I didn’t go anywhere So thank you Colorado What hasn’t killed me yet Might leave me standing Turned the right way ’round So thank you Colorado I could lie and say we’re friends It’s true we’ll nod and smile Deep inside it hurt My ego ached for a while So thank you Colorado What hasn’t killed me yet Might leave me standing Turned the right way ’round So thank you Colorado Love these open spaces But there are other places No sense hanging on Once the spark is gone So thank you Colorado Showed me who I’m not First you built me up Then you tore me down You’re just like that woman What hasn’t killed me yet Might leave me standing Turned the right way ’round So thank you Colorado Thank you Colorado Thank you Colorado ©Ricki E.
