Santa Fe [Live]
by Shawn Mullins



She was sitting in the corner of a cafe
In the burning heart of downtown Santa Fe
Picking on a Gibson and singing "Baby Can't You See"

She was buzzing like a battlefield tracer
She was grinding like gears on a Pacer
I said sister Bloody Mary, won't you do a little number for me?

She said I'll sing you any song that you wanna hear
Just pull up a bar stool and buy me another beer
Take me away, take me away from here
Take me far away, Santa Fe, Santa Fe

He was living with some hippies in school bus
They had puttered here from Boulder covered in dust
He said I know a little lady living 30 miles up the road

I got a feeling that my ride ain't gonna take me
If I don't see my little lady it will break me
Another 24 hours here, I think I might just explode

I been doing everything I know to try and stay free
Working for the man just ain't no kind of plan for me
So take me away, take where I wanna be
Take me far away Santa Fe, Santa Fe

I'll sing you any song that you wanna hear
It will sound a lot better if you have yourself another beer
Take me away, take me away from here
Take me far away Santa Fe, Santa Fe
