Lyrics:

Short Chorus:
He's a hundred miles from Boulder,
He's given up his chains.
Yesterday's being washed away
by the Colorado rain.

Verse 1:
When he left his home in Georgia,
he'd done all that he could do.
He would never be the man
to fill his father's shoes.
So at twenty-five, he's left it all behind.
Somewhere deep inside,
there's a man he has to find.

Chorus:
He's a hundred miles from Boulder,
He's given up his chains.
Yesterday's being washed away
by the Colorado rain.
He breathes the cool, clean western air,
feels the wind blow through his hair.
He's a hundred miles from Boulder,
but his heart's already there.

Verse 2:
He has always longed for freedom-
He has always wanted more.
He's been tied to the ground
but has wings that need to soar.
So at three A.M., he's driving through the night
He will learn to live,
climb a mountain, and take flight.

Repeat Chorus

Bridge:
The life he lives tomorrow
will be his- and his alone.
With this change, he just might free
the sword lodged in the stone.

Repeat Short Chorus
