Durango Mountain Caballero

This song is by John Denver & The Muppets and appears on the television soundtrack Rocky Mountain Holiday (1982).

You know I love the trail I'm on and the friends who ride with me
The country that we're passing through is a paradise to see
A haven for my spirit, the homeland of my dreams
My heart flies through the wilderness and on an eagle's wings

And oh I love the waterfall and the way the river sings
From snow-capped peaks both proud and tall through forests deep and green
The highway of the mountains, the lifeblood of the land
I can hear my mother speak to me and hold my father's hand

Durango Mountain caballero, take me for a ride
On the backbone of this mighty land, the Continental Divide
To the place where earth and heaven meet the mountains and the sky
In the heart of Colorado, Rocky Mountain high

And oh I love the campfire and the circle that I'm in
The stories and the laughter, they should never ever end
Forever in my memory, forever in my song
On a San Juan mountain trail ride, I'll carry you along
