Telluride
by Tim McGraw



When I was nineteen,
I threw my stuff in the car
I headed up to the Rockies, got a job at this bar
Sellin' beer to the locals, just barely gettin' by
On the tips from the rich kids, their on Daddy's dime
But when I saw her walk in one night
I knew that I'd be alright in...

[Chorus]
Telluride
The snow fallin' down
I was wakin' up with her in that sleepy little town
In her eyes my world came so alive

I never will forget the moment she arrived in Telluride

We spent that whole winter tangled up by a fire
Castin' shadows on the cabin wall, drownin' in desire
Confessin' all our secrets and laughin' out loud
So high up on that mountain
I thought we'd never come down
It was a dream we were livin' in
And I was the happiest I'd ever been, in....

[Chorus]
I will never forget all those sleepless nights in Telleride

It ended just like a movie scene
And I had to play the part
Of the lover who stood there and watched her leave
And me with the frozen heart, in....

[Chorus]
I never will forget the day she said good bye, in Telluride

[Chorus]
I will never forget all those sleepless nights in Telluride

Telluride [Repeat until fade]
