about

Our friend, photographer JT Thomas, told of an early morning ride with a snowplow driver up in the San Juan Mtns. Seemed like a good song to write.

lyrics

Written by Mike Finders and Bill Powers

The million dollar highway heads south from Ouray,
past silver palaces on high.
One side goes straight up, the other falls away,
you swear you could touch the sky.
But at eleven thousand feet, when that snow starts to fall,
this ain't no place to play around.
There was a time no one was fool enough to try,
but this morning I'm Red Mountain bound.

And the good lord will take me when he wants me.
Sometimes that candle burns fast.
Everyone knows, it's the way it goes,
each trip could be your last.
Someone's got to plow that pass.
Somebody's got to plow that pass.
I plow the Red Mountain Pass.

I use my senses they're the tools of my trade.
Both size and speed are on my side.
These eyes, these ears, a keen sense of my blade,
and a little luck to be my guide.
Well, I've known some good men who ain't up here today.
Some lost the will, some missed the curve.
Anything can happen, you can always lose your way.
I'm holding on with my last nerve.

I got called up here before this storm blew in.
Can't see the road from the blowin' snow.
I'm hangin' on white knuckled, my breath is growing thin,
'Round another corner I go.
Well, I've seen some big storms, but this one tops them all.
My gut knows that mountain rumblin' sound.
I can't see where I'm going and I can't afford to stall,
Either way, I'm coming home.
