Aspen, Colorado

This song is by Robert Cray and appears on the album Robert Cray & Hi Rhythm (2017).

I was born into a simple life
It didn't take much to satisfy me
Then there came a time when I knew
I had to leave

Tried to get a job in Alabama
But the man said he didn't need no one today
I made my way down to Memphis
And I stayed a few days

Got a letter from my mama
She said "Boy, won't you try to come on home?"
And daddy said "We'd give you all the land
For your own, please come on home"

But there comes a time in everybody's life
When you have to search for peace in mind
I might go to Aspen, Colorado
Spend some time
I hear that it's fine

Oh, when the leaves fall and start turning
And one fall softly to the ground
I have thoughts of other places
Some new towns
To be found
