I Guess he'd Rather Be In Colorado

He'd rather spend his time out where the sky looks like a pearl after a rain
And asking them for bus fare
He'd rather play his banjo in the morning when the moon is scarcely gone
Some old song he wrote of love in Boulder Canyon
I guess he'd rather be in Colorado
In the end up in his office
He lives in New York City
