"That's Not My Colorado"
Lyrics, tune, & singing by Kat LaFrance/katlaughing
copyright April 20, 1999

Liner notes: "According to Bert, this is the "FIRST MUDCAT collaboration song" as he had the first tune for it. Written on Mudcat as we lived through that awful day of the Columbine High School shootings. Thanks, Bert, for your encouragement!"

LYRICS:

"That's not my Colorado
With the blue skies up above,
That's not my Colorado,
Where the school ran with blood.

That's not my Colorado
Where my parents grew up proud
That's not my Colorado
Senseless killing was not allowed.

Colorado was the beauty
Of the Rocky Mountains high
Colorado was the quiet
Of the river's gentle sigh.

Colorado meant a home to me
And now, I know it not
That's not my Colorado
Where the children felt the shot.

REPEAT FIRST TWO VERSES
