lyrics

UTAH
by Elias Judge

I'm Goin' back... Im Goin' back to Utah
Back to the hills of Dixie, back to the big 'D' and that hot red dirt
Gonna Roll down Tabernacle Street in a big ol white 68 Monterey fastback
with that faint smell of stale cigarette smoke
Gonna walk downtown like my legs were 5 feet long on a 101 degree day
Just pimpin' along down a street twice as wide as it needs to be

CHORUS:
I'm goin back to Utah - Back to that blazin' hot Dixie sun
I'm goin back to Utah - Back to my ol' grandaddy's farm
I'm goin back to Utah - I wanna smell that sweet grass on the breeze
I'm goin back to Utah - I swear I hear those red hills callin' me
They call me back to Utah

Gonna sit out on that cement porch with my kin on a hot summer nightand listen to stories about the old days
Then the next mornin', gonna take a walk down to that old abandoned rodeo
and kick my boots in the dirt. Then I'll wander up into the bleechers
and just sit there and listen to the ghosts of the cowboys and the horses
and the small town crowd
(Chorus)

Gonna drive out into the back hills and see those bleach white cattle skulls
Gonna spill a little water from my canteen onto a rock and listen to it sizzle in the sun.
Then later, I'll go up to my uncles house and we'll have a few beers
And when it comes time to turn in I'll set up a cot on his porch
and just toss and turn and toss and turn cuz it's too hot to sleep.
(Chorus)

Gonna look through the dirty windows on the side of the old dried up town swimmin' pool
Then after that, maybe I'll take a trip out to the country
Maybe find myself a nice blonde haired blue eyed Mormon girl n settle down
Hopefully a better gal than ol' Uncle Ashby found
He's blind, ex-wife shot him 5 times comin' out the trailer, still he survived
(Chorus)
