SARAH IN THE SUMMER The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band I've driven this road as a stranger I've driven this road as a friend I've driven this road as a slack-jawed tourist And I'm drivin' on it once again It might be cold and long and lonely But she's waitin' on the other side And I'm an hour closer to Sarah in the summer And joyfully I ride. Joyfully I ride. And I've climbed through Georgetown, to Silver Plume The tunnel at Loveland's cold The lake on the left is a little lower Route 9 is the Breckenridge road There's a sign right below Copper Mountain Tellin' whether Independence runs free And I'm an hour closer to Sarah in the summer And that's where I wanna be That's where I wanna be In the evening shadow of Red Butte Up the lane from the Slaughter House Bridge The first cabin the moonlight strikes As it crests the cleft in Hunter Crick Ridge Up from between Old Red and Smuggler Rising high on a piano bench there And I'm an hour closer to Sarah in the summer And what lies between beware What lies between, beware Oh, when the red sandstone sentinels Rising high on either side As I follow the Eagle Valley Through the canyon where the Saints reside In Mt. Snowmass' massive majesty south And east out of Glennywood Springs And I'm an hour closer to Sarah in the summer Where the Roaring River sings The Roaring River sings. I've driven this road as a stranger I've driven this road as a friend I've driven this road as a slack-jawed tourist And I'm drivin' on it once again It might be cold and long and lonely But she's waitin' on the other side And I'm an hour closer to Sarah in the summer And joyfully I ride. Joyfully I ride. (Transcribed by Nancy & family - August 2003)
