Now the girls in telluride do it like this
Cross their fingers when they kiss you
Don't say nothing behind your back
And they don't take nothin' that they don't give back
Take the gold into telluride

Work all winter in the tomboy mine
Dreamin' of what we'll do
When the snow finally ends
And the spring breaks through
We'll load up the wagon & set the little one by our side
Take the gold into telluride

I'd like to lay you down on a cannonball bed
Put a soft feather pillow down by your head
Intertwine flowers into a maiden's veil
Wake you in the morning
Now she's wailing take the gold into telluride

Ain't nothing'll stop an avalanche when it's sliding
Once the wagon starts to roll, you can't turn the mule and the brakes don't hold;
You end up in the valley with the little one by your side
Take the gold into telluride.

Lace curtains for the windows,
Dreams torn from a catalog page.
We may wander where the wind blows
You change your views but our love won't change
She gonna climb you high on top of a hill
Fall asleep laughing with the whipporwill
Intertwined flowers in the matrons ring
Wake you in the morning
Now she's singing take the gold into telluride

I loved my winter with a teenage bride
Dreamin of what we'll do
When the snow finally ends
And the spring breaks through
We'll load up the wagon, set the little one by our side
Take the gold into telluride
Take the gold into telluride
