it was shimmering light came right up off the lake
shone into the middle of the night as I hid in a canoe
she grabbed me tight the blood rushed out I'm turning white
must have been quite a sight from me to you

1/2 chorus
| E F# | E F# | B F# G#- | ./. |
in a western way we travel through the day chasing tails and sunsets

then I could not believe my eyes how the Rockies started to rise
from a thousand miles of nothing but plains
then we climb and climb into the sky look at that slope I ain't never tried
to go up or down something that steep

in a western way we travel through the day chasing tails and sunsets
in an eastern style we look and smile and say no regrets

when we reached the peak we all got out walked through the clouds
nothin to see but what we found up there
there was a thousand people on a mountain top
dancing and singing to pop the top
hoping that this beat would never drop


it was a stroke a genius when it occurred to me that
I could stretch out my legs and sleep comfortably
if I stuffed myself in a over head baggage
and then that time when we bounced a hundred feet
up off the ice everybody knuckles was cold and white
right afterward everyone was real nice

chorus 2x

tails and sunsets, chasing tails and sunsets oh
chasing tails and sunsets oh
