Subject: Kate Wolf's Telluride
From: Naemanson
Date: 27 Apr 01 - 08:10 AM

As the thread title says I am looking for the lyrics and chords for the song Kate Wolf. I can transcribe the words easily enough but I am hopeless at figuring out the chords by ear so the real thrust of this message is to get the chords.

Actually, now that I think about it, I'm not sure if the name of the song is correct. I've always thought of it as "Telluride" but that may be another song. This is the song about the guy working at the Telluride sawmill and thinking about his old friend who left town years before.

Bigchuck (Sandy)used to do this. He hasn't in recent years, but he may remember the chords. He got out of doing it, in part, because I wouldn't learn it because the chord pattern made no sense and I couldn't follow it.

He probably won't see the Mudcat until tonight. Maybe he can help you then.

Peter.

I still love to do the song, I just don't do it when Peter's around. :>) The chords, like many of Kate's are a bit unusual. I'll try to get them posted tonight.

Ok, I just posted it. Man, that's a lot of work. Guess I'd better go back and see wow it came out.
Transferred from another thread, with preformat tags added to space chords. No need for two threads on one song, bigchuck.
-Joe Offer-

While popularized by Kate Wolfe, this fine song was actually written by folks in a band called the "Cache Valley Drifters". I have probably tinkered with a few of the lyrics, but the chording comes from the second Kate Wolfe Songbook.

TELLURIDE

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

D A Em D
A collector of dreams was my old friend
Em G Em A
Always talkin bout the good times to come
G D F# Bm
But I started workin at the Telluride Sawmill
Em C A
And I been there since I turned twenty-one

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


We were two kids gowing up in the Rockies
In the mountains so wild and so free
He was my good friend and my constant companion
Though in years he was younger by three

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

CHO Same as first, but different last line
And I don't often think about my old friend

So mister preacher won't you give me an answer
I just can't go on this way
I'm gettin old and I don't feel so good
Have I just been wasting all of my days

D G D
Telluride, Telluri-hi-ide
Em C A
Have I just been wasting all of my days
