Monsoon Rains by mark mitten (c) 2018 Trailer full o’ pack mules Drop that old Ford into low Nothing in the rearview But a wall o’ square bale hay Found myself again In the monsoon rains on Red Mountain Pass Coffee in Durango Gonna race the narrow gauge Million Dollar Highway? Well my truck cost a thousand dimes Found myself again In the monsoon rains on Red Mountain Pass Road crews fixing guardrail But then they always do, what’s new Brewery in Ouray Only thing been on my mind Found myself again In the monsoon rains on Red Mountain Pass Found myself again…. Lost myself again In the rain

Yankee Girl by mark mitten (c) 2018 That old diner's closed again changing hands and changing names the San Juans rise up south of town they used to know me here Well she's in the wind I see her through the trees just around the bend it's getting hard to see sun goes down Yankee girl is gone That old hydrant froze again winter games and frozen hands happens every year it seems the San Juans disappear, the snow is coming down Well she's in the wind I see her through the trees just around the bend it's getting hard to see sun goes down Yankee girl is gone

Hands of Time by mark mitten (C) 2018 You seen it all a million times before You seen it all a million times A cowboy rides An indian he fights Ain’t no winners here but the hands of time Snake bit, he lies Broke-hearted belle, she cries Ain’t no healers here but the hands of time You seen it all a million times before You seen it all a million times Sunlight fades away with the evening moon Not a moment too soon You seen it all a million times before You seen it all a million times A law man bleeds A gun man rides his steed Ain’t no running here from the hands of time A parson reads A con man laughs and drinks Nothing changing here but the hands of time You seen it all a million times before You seen it all a million times Sunlight fades away with the evening moon Not a moment too soon You seen it all a million times before You seen it all a million times Tumbleweeds and poker cards Blow across the grassy plain Blow across the grassy plain

Fairground 03:13
Fairground by mark mitten (C) 2018 When the sunlight’s gone, and the clouds are low Get your keys on out, turn the radio When the engine’s cold, you know the heat is slow Cup your hands and blow Well your saddle goes in the pickup truck Light a cigarette in the wind Watch a Coors can roll like a tumbleweed Guess it’s time to go It ain’t fair, why now? Bootsteps, hollow sound She gone, and left Fairground It ain’t fair, why now? Bootsteps, hollow sound She gone, and left Fairground

Jordan 03:39
Jordan (c) 2018 mark mitten Horseman, pass by leave me alone my feet in the grass my head on a stone Sky rend above and the sun is shining on the waters of the Jordan A new man will rise from ashes and bone these deserts and hills it's time to go home Sky rend above and the sun is shining on the waters of the Jordan It's gonna leave me once again all my troubles all my pain it's gonna leave me once again leave me once again
