The Best


On The Way To Colorado

September 24, 2020


I've seen ZBB perform this song in Charlottesville (twice), Columbia (MD}, Fenway Park (twice), Coors Field, Petco Park (I think they sang it there) and Nationals Park. Something about seeing an entire stadium on their feet, waving back and forth, belting out the words makes this song unforgettable for me. And the lyrics get to me every darn time.


She'd trade Colorado if he'd take her with him Closes the door before the winter lets the cold in, And wonders if her love is strong enough to make him stay She's answered by the tail lights Shining through the window pane He said I wanna see you again

But I'm stuck in colder weather Maybe tomorrow will be better Can I call you then She said you're ramblin' man You ain't ever gonna change You gotta gypsy soul to blame And you were born for leavin'

At a truck stop diner just outside of Lincoln, The night is black as the coffee he was drinkin', And in the waitress' eyes he sees the same 'ol light shinin' He thinks of Colorado And the girl he left behind


He said I wanna see you again But I'm stuck in colder weather Maybe tomorrow will be better Can I call you then

She said you're ramblin' man You ain't ever gonna change You gotta gypsy soul to blame And you were born for leavin' Born for leavin'

Well it's a winding road When you're in the lost and found You're a lover I'm a runner We go 'round 'n 'round And I love you but I leave you I don't want you but I need you You know it's you who calls me back here

Oh I wanna see you again But I'm stuck in colder weather Maybe tomorrow will be better Can I call you then 'Cause I'm a ramblin' man I ain't ever gonna change I gotta gypsy soul And I was born for leavin' (born for leavin')

When I close my eyes I see you No matter where I am I can smell your perfume through these whispering pines I'm with your ghost again It's a shame about the weather But I know soon we'll be together And I can't wait 'til then I can't wait 'til then



Zac, we miss the old stuff. Bring it back, please!
