ROCKY MOUNTAIN TIME
(John Prine)
As recorded by John Prine on "Diamonds in the Rough" (1972)

The station was empty
The trains were all gone
I reached in my pocket
And I wanted for dawn

Chorus:
The clock played drums
And I hummed the sax
And the wind whistled down
The railroad tracks
Hey three for a quarter
One for a dime
I'll bet it's tomorrow
By Rocky Mountain time

I walked in the restaurant
For something to do
The waitress yelled at me
And so did the food
And the water taste funny
When you're far from your home
But it's only the thirsty
That hunger to roam

(Repeat chorus)

We'll build us a castle on Main Street
And pretend that we're down on the farm
Hell, we'll hold out as long as we have to
Then we'll twist off each other's arm

Christ I'm so mixed up and lonely
I can't even make friends with my brain
I'm too young to be where I'm going
But I'm too old to go back again

(Repeat first verse and chorus)

Gee, I thought this was a mixup between John Denver's "Rocky Mountain High" and "Wild Mountain Thyme." I thought I was familiar with all of Prines' work, but I didn't know this one. It's on his "Diamonds in the Rough" album.
