Lyrics


Spent the last year

Rocky Mountain way

Couldn't get much higher

Out to pasture

Think it's safe to say

Time to open fire


And we don't need the ladies

Cryin' 'cause the story's sad

'Cause the Rocky Mountain way

Is better than the way we had

Whoa-oh-oh


Well, he's tellin' us this

And he's tellin' us that

Changes it ev'ry day

Says it doesn't matter

Bases are loaded

And Casey's at bat

Playin' it play-by-play

Time to change the batter


And we don't need the ladies

Cryin' 'cause the story's sad, uh huh

Rocky Mountain way

Is better than the way we had

Yeah-ah-ah.
