Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Well it's two eggs up on whiskey toast
And home fries on the side
Wash it down with the road house coffee
Burns up your insides
Just a Canyon-Colorado Diner
And a waitress I did love
I sat in the back neath an old stuffed bear
And a worn out Navajo rug
Verse 2
Well Old Jack, the boss, he left at six
And it's Katie bar the door
She'd pull down that Navajo rug
And she'd spread it across the floor
Hey, I saw lightning cross the sacred mountains
Saw woven turtle doves
I was sittin' next to Katie
On that old Navajo rug
Verse 0
[Chorus]
Aye, Aye, Aye, Katie
Shades of red and blue
Aye, Aye, Aye, Katie
Whatever became of the Navajo rug and you
Katie, shades of red and blue
Verse 3
Well I saw old Jack about a year ago
He said the place burned to the ground
And all I saved was this old bear tooth
And Katie, she's left town
Oh, but Katie, she got her souvenir too
Jack spat a tobacco plug
Well you should have seen her a-coming through the smoke
Draggin' that Navajo rug
Verse 4
[Chorus]
Verse 5
So every time I cross the sacred mountains
And lightning breaks above
It always takes me back in time
To my long lost Katie love
But everything keeps on a-moving
Yeah, everybody's on the go
You don't find things that last anymore
Like an old woven Navajo
Verse 6
[Chorus: x2]
