GUEST,Steve Lyr/Chords Req: Telluride (sung by Kate Wolf) (9) RE: Lyr/Chords Req: Telluride (sung by Kate Wolf) 22 Aug 11


D                A       Em       D
On my way to the Telluride Sawmill today
   Em               G                Em       A
I thought about an old friend who'd long gone away
G          D                F#       Bm
He took to travellin when he turned seventeen
    Em          C          A
And I stayed at home with a family

D               A             Em       D
A collector of dreams was my old friend
Em             G            Em         A
Always talkin bout the good times to come
    G            D          F#         Bm
But I started workin at the Telluride Sawmill
       Em                  C            A
And I been there since I turned twenty-one

G                     D             F#          Bm
And the river keeps rollin past the south county line
         Em                G          Em          A
And I'd love to roll with it, but I've run out of time
         G             D          F#       G
the years roll by like logs in a river
       Em             C         A
And I know I ain't gettin no younger

We were kids gowing up in the Rockies
Where the mountains were young and so free
He was my friend and my equal
Though in years he was younger by three

We grew up in the usual fashion
Never wanting to grow up at all
But I found a family and he found the rails
And he left on the train for St Paul

CHO Same as first, but different last line
And I don't often think about my old friend

So mister preacher won't you give me an answer please
I just can't go on this way
I'm gettin older and I don't feel so good
Have I just been wasting my time

D             G       D               
Telluride, Telluri-hi-ide
         Em               C          A
Have I just been wasting my time
