Colorado Trail Song
The Colorado Trail song is a genuine song of the old West. The simple lyrics make one of the loveliest of cowboy love poems, and the haunting melody has real beauty. This was written by a real cowboy!
The list of piano chords for this Cowboy song is more extensive than you tend to encounter in such a short melody! You can get away with a more limited choice of chords, but this harmony gives a feeling of movement and depth, of shaping the sound... and of subtle surprise. It's hard to explain - just try the chords out!

Very pretty... but where are the rest of the lyrics? Well, this is one of those SHORT cowboy poems. More lyrics are certainly out there on the internet, but only this first verse is really public domain, so that's the only verse I am posting here.

The words of this short Cowboy poem remind me of a Middle English poem I first encountered in a college class, short but hauntingly lovely:
'Westron wynde, when wilt thou blow,
The small raine down can raine.
Cryst, if my love were in my armes
And I in my bedde again!'
My professor said, "This poem has EVERYTHING in it - disappointed love, religion, and the WEATHER!"
And so it is with Colorado Trail...
