Kate Wolf sang it but I don't think she wrote it--I think it was on one of her earlier albums (late 1970's) but I'm not sure. Can anybody help?

Ely, you can find some info about the song here (look for "Telluride" written in bold while you're scrolling down the page) or here. Couldn't find the lyrics. Anyone...? It begins with "On my way to the Telluride...".

I have it on my Kate Wolf Anthology CD but don't have time to write down the lyrics right this minute. Let's wait and see if anyone else has 'em and if not, I'll get to them this evening.

Terrific song. ww

D A Em D
On my way to the Telluride sawmill today
Em G Em A
I thought about an old friend who'd long gone astray
G D F# Bm
He took to traveling when he turned seventeen
Em C A And I stayed at home with a family

A collector of dreams was my old friend
Always talkin bout the good times to come
But I started working at the Telluride sawmill
And I've been there since I turned 21

G........................D...............F#..........
And the river just keeps rollin past the south county
.Bm...
line
Em...................G.........Em..................A..
And I'd love to roll with it, but I've run out of time
G...................D.........F#............G...
The years they just roll by like logs in a river
Em.................C..........A....
And I know I ain't gettin no younger.

We were two kids growing up in the Rockies
The mountains so wild and so free
He was my good friend and ready companion
Though in years he was younger by Three

We grew up in the usual fashion
Never wanting to grow up at all
But I found a family and he found the rails
And he left on the train for St. Paul.

Well the river just keeps rollin past the south county line
I'd love to roll with it, but I've run out of time
And the years they roll by like logs in a river
And I don't often think about my old friend

So Mr. Preacher won't you give me an answer
You know I can't go on this way Have I just been wastin all of my days

D...............G..D.
Telluride, Telluride,
Em...............C............A
Have I just been wasting my time.

I've been doing this wonderful song for years. While Kate recorded it, it was written by David West and Cyrus Clarke, who I believe were part of the Cache County Drifters.
Sandy

Ah yes, live and learn with HTML. Let me try that first verse again.
