Lyrics:

Steamboat Town

Words & Music by John Curtis Anderson 2011 John Curtis Anderson

Verse 1 - Steamboat Town Hey you're not around and I'm missin' all the things that you are

Friends & food and a warm fire burnin' till dawn

At ski cities where the women are pretty It's not so bad justa playin' guitar

We're on the road but we'll be there one of these days



Refrain - But you better not walk all night alone You better take that town on your own

Thinkin' bout an old red barrr and a tuned up Saturday night

But I'm guessin' there's a tall glass waitin' and a whole crowd bakin'

And a cryin' kind of feelin' that's a long time shakin'

every long lost title line ramblin' through the ski town blues



Verse 2 - Now old hotels can pad the road so well Crowded bars in their cellars at night

A western room and a country tune and a fight

Daytime roamin' with a waitress humin' half the songs you were playin' last night

She's on your arm but your history at the end of the week

Repeat Refrain

Instrumental

Repeat Refrain

Verse 3 - Headin' East with your mind at peace but the drivin' is boring and hard

It's gonna be good to be home in the woods for a while

Steamboat's waitin' and the morning's breakin' 50 miles or so is all that we need

We'll have a little rest then we'll head out and do it again

Repeat Refrain plus part of the Refrain from (But I'm guessin') again & end
