Color Red

Her car was just a Dodge and she was just a co-ed going west
The mountains calling her were from a poster pinned above her desk
A friend had called her and told her, Colorado air was best
For making up your mind and finding time,
And finding time, and finding time—taking time to rest.
 
And I am just the man who said,
She clears this state, I'll clear my head.
I'm Amarillo yellow,
She's Colorado color red.
 
She says the mountain lakes are great for water skiing with her friends
I'm lying in my bed imagining her laughter and her grin
She's just a state away, or two or three... which route it just depends
She's counting her beginnings, I'm just counting all the time,
All the time, the time until this ends.
 
And I am just the man who said,
She clears this state, I'll clear my head.
I'm Amarillo yellow,
She's Colorado color red.
 
I'm black and blue with your love,
Don't know what state I'm in,
But nothing hurts like true love,
Just let it in, with time... time... in time...
 
In my Toyota truck, with any luck, I'll find her with a smile,
Perhaps she'll let me stay for just a day, for just a little while,
Is it this altitude that makes me dizzy, or is it her style?
I pass another marker on my way,
I'm on my way, a bit more time, just another mile.
 
And I am just the man who said,
She clears this state, I'll clear my head.
I'm Amarillo yellow,
She's Colorado color red.
And I am just the man who said,
She clears this state, I'll clear my head.
I'm Amarillo yellow,
She's Colorado color red.
