Over here on the Western Slope
we live on Mountain Time.
What’s right is right, what’s wrong is wrong
And what’s mine is dang sure mine
Yore neighbor might not be real close
at least as distance goes.
But he’ll be right there to help you out
if you’ve got a load of woes.
The Zone’s not named for oceans
or the middle heartland either.
It’s named for snowcapped peaks
that give you climbin fever.
Our Prime Time ain’t about New York
or even Boston town.
Our Prime Time’s sittin on the porch
to watch the sun go down.
