The path to outdoor news and gear reviews for Colorado
How about: Me and My Uncle by the Grateful Dead?
REO Speedwagon are already the gods of everything. Do they need a state song too?
I'm gonna keep on lovin' you...Colorado!
I do like "Rocky Mountain Way" though it never mentions Colorado. Neither does "Riding the Storm Out". Pretty much all the others are virtual unknowns to much of the nation. "Rocky Mountain High" stands head and shoulders above the rest. But if the whole so-called anti-developer aspect irritates your raw conservative hide, then check out the equally beautiful "Guess He'd Rather Be in Colorado" by (again) John Denver.
But oh my dearOur love is here to stayTogether we're going a long long wayIn time the Rockies may crumbleGibraltar may tumbleThey're only made of clayBut our love is here to stayThe Gershwin brothers penned this beautiful song, "Our Love is Here to Stay," which makes passing reference to Colorado.So does John Hiatt in "Circle Back:" Cross the high plains of KansasTo the Colorado lineSpent a lot of sleepless nights 'Round the campfireThey had mountains on their mindsThose high plains peopleThey're different somehowYou spent your life leaning into a hard windI guess you're less likely to take a bow . . .Love those last two lines
If we're going to dip into folk, how 'bout that song "Take this Hammer." At least in the Doc Watson version, the lyric says."It's a long way, from east ColoradoHoney to my home,Honey to my home,"
Referencing the Rockies is not a passing reference to Colorado. The Rockies run from northern British Columbia to southern New Mexico.

I love Rocky Mountain High. When I first heard it I lived in California and have always thought of it as a Colorado song.
It is a good site.---------------juliana colorado drug rehab
