Chris Ledoux - Western Skies

My Nashville friends think I'm strange

To make my home out on the range

Think it's nothing but a God-forsaken land

Why don't you bring your guitar and family

Move on down to Tennessee

Well, I just smile 'cause they don't understand

But if they ever saw a sunrise on a mountain morning

Watched those cotton candy clouds go by

They know why I live beneath these Western Skies

I got peace of mind and elbow-room

I love the smell of sage in bloom

I catch a rainbow on my fishing line

We got county fairs and rodeos

Ain't a better place for my kids to grow

Just turn 'em loose in the western summer time

And if you ever held your woman on a summers evening

While the prairie moon was blazing in her eyes

You know why I live beneath these Western Skies

You ain't lived until you've watched those Northern Lights

Sat around the campfire and hear the coyotes call at night

Makes you feel alright

So guess I'll stay right where I'm at

Wear my boots and my cowboyhat

But I'll come and see you once in a while

I'll bring my guitar and sing my songs

Sorry if I don't stay too long

I love Tennessee but you know it just ain't 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
