lyrics

BUSKING ON THE BOSQUE

-----( VERSE )-----
Send out a scout
Take a direct route

An adventurous quest
just take I-40 west

Cranes flying in a V
over an ancient valley

Creatures in the neighborhood
out amongst the cottonwoods
( G, Am, Bm, C )////

-----( VERSE )-----
Leaping over the handrail
we decided to set sail

In the here and now
on a day with no clouds

It’s all for free
busking on the Bosque

On a riverboat tour
playing for Mother Nature
( G, Am, Bm, C )////

-----( REFRAIN )-----
After a long migration
now you're back at the station

You've traveled far
with your father's guitar

To a history tossed
in a land that was lost

With time it fades
into rusty barricades
( Bm, Em, C, D )// D7

-----( VERSE )-----
With your main squeeze
drifting through Albuquerque

All your material riches
are a beat up pair of britches

On the ground where we lay
in this brilliant sun ray

Packin' a picnic lunch
trust me, that what she wants
( G, Am, Bm, C )////
TO REFRAIN

-----( VERSE )-----
We're a mighty wild bunch
we do all our own stunts

Since the day i joined the band
out here on the Rio Grande

It only seems fitting
when Joel starts to whistling

Plucking a ukulele
flowing into the sea
( G, Am, Bm, C )////
