D   G    D
Colorado was so nice, 
     D       G      D
but I'm Minnesota's son
      D       G          D
Even when the cold winds blow
        A               G
in the darkness and the light

         D           G         D
And the young folks search for meaning here
         D         G           D
and the old folks know there's none
         D       G        D
Out your window you can see the world
          A                 G
Babe it's turning, and it's gone


G                        D A G
And the stars at night, 

G                        D A G
why do they make you cry?
G                                   A
Don't you think that I'll be coming home?

Well it's not like Sunny, Monterrey
in all the Steinbeck books you read,
Where the hobos know the secrets and
the law turns their head

We are as close to paradise
even though you might not hear it said,
And the Methodists all bring a dish to share
with the ashes on their head

And when the sun's in the sky,
we'll have a class outside,
Why do you think that I can be so cold?

I'm not scared of much here anymore,
wait, friends, that was a lie
'Cause I'm scared to death of losing you,
to be alone, high and dry

And I know you worry, 
about time and money,
but don't you know those things, they come and go?
