    "Snowin' On Raton" Lyrics

    Robert Earl Keen

    Townes Van Zandt

    When the wind don't blow in Amarillo
    When the moon along the Gunnison don't rise
    And I cast my dreams upon your love babe
    And lie beneath the laughter of your eyes

    Snowin' on Raton
    Come morning I'll be through them hills and gone
    Snowin' on Raton
    Come morning I'll be through them hills and gone

    Mother thinks the road is long and lonely
    Little brother thinks the road is straight and fine
    Little darlin' thinks the road is soft and lovely
    I'm thankful that ole road's a friend of mine

    (Repeat Chorus)

    I'll bid the years goodbye, you cannot steal them
    You cannot turn the circles of the sun
    You cannot count the miles until you feel them
    You cannot hold a lover that is gone

    (Repeat Chorus)

    Tomorrow the mountains will be sleepin'
    Silent 'neath the blanket green and blue
    And I shall hear the silence they are keepin'
    And I'll bring all their promises to you

    (Repeat Chorus)
