San Miguel County © 2018 Bill Scorzari
I was feelin’ down, out in San Miguel county, wonderin', "When's this gonna change?" Walkin' ‘round, I got lost and then you found me and you asked me for my name. You said you’ve a mind to just forget where you were going and you asked me, “Would that be so wrong? ‘Cause, if you’re inclined to take the time to get to know me, maybe I might just tag along.” And in the days and nights that followed, we took shelter from the wind. You poured your love into my hollowed heart and slowly filled it in. I can still feel the way you touched me for the very first time and every time we’ve touched since then, that memory’s right here in my mind. You said, “Just like as if whiskey was my friend, the way a friendship can grow old and warms your heart until the end and brings a lightness to your soul, just like as if whiskey was my friend, just let your love come pourin’ in, and if it should come pourin’ out again, pour me as much as I can hold.” And in the days and nights that followed, we took shelter from the wind and you poured your love into my hollowed heart and you slowly filled it in. I can still feel the way you touched me for the very first time and every time we’ve touched since then, that memory’s right here in my mind. It’s right here in my mind. I was feelin’ down, out in San Miguel county, wonderin', "When's this gonna change?" Walkin' round, I got lost and then you found me. You asked me for my name.
