I GUESS HE'D RATHER BE IN COLORADO
Bill Danoff, Taffy Nivert
1971 Cherry Lane Music Co.

I guess he'd rather be in Colorado
He'd rather spend his time out where 
The sky looks like a pearl after a rain
Once again I see him walkin 
Once again I hear him talking 
To the stars he makes
And asking them for bus fare

I guess he'd rather be in Colorado
He'd rather play his banjo in the morning 
When the moon is scarcely gone
In the dawn the subways comin
In the dawn I hear him hummin'
Some old song he wrote of love in Boulder Canyon
I guess he'd rather be in Colorado

I guess he'd rather be in Colorado
I guess he'd rather work out 
Where the only thing you earn 
Is what you spend
In the end up in his office
In the end a quiet cough 
Is all he has to show
He lives in New York City
