Enchanted Land

 

It was just an old license plate

From off the back of the camper

It was cracked, worn and aged

Had seen many a place

Came from Albuquerque

Nestled in the Sandia

Enchanted land

Ride the tramway to the mountain top

The horizon doesn’t seem to stop.

A desert oases

Where the Indian

And the Mexican

Live with the coyote

With the Manzano peeping in

It’s nuclear secrets buried underneath

Where the Horned Toad spits blood out of its eye

The Blue Tailed lizard runs by as if it could fly

The silky sands blow into every part of the body

Many canyons to hike that take you up high

Lot's of rocks to throw

Be in Santa Fe tomorrow.

 

It something I can’t do justice to describe

It’s visions are buried deep in my brain

Where many a sand forts were built

Sometimes I wonder if  remnants still remain

Enchanted land

Tumbleweed rolls on down that gravel road

Like they are chasing those horny toads

As long as the wind blows

Finding many an arrowhead for my bow

There’s lots to do

Be in Santa Fe tomorrow

Have a license to renew.
