Navajo Rug Lyrics

Well it's two eggs up on whiskey toast - home fries on the side
Ya wash it down with the road house coffee that burns up your insides
It's just a Canyon-Colorado Diner - a waitress I did love
We sat in the back neath an old stuffed bear and a worn out Navajo rug

Aye, Aye, Aye, Katie - shades of red and blue
Aye, Aye, Aye, Katie - whatever became of the Navajo rug and you

Well old Jack the boss he left at six - it was Katie bar the door
She'd pull down that Navajo rug and we'd spread it across the floor
I saw lightning frame those sacred mountains - the wooing of a turtle dove
Just lyin' next to Katie on that old Navajo rug

Aye, Aye, Aye, Katie - shades of red and blue
Aye, Aye, Aye, Katie - whatever became of the Navajo rug and you

Well I saw old Jack about a year ago - he said the place had burned to the ground
And all he saved was an old bear tooth and Katie, she's left town
Well Katie got a souvenir too Jack smiled as he spit out a big ole plug
Well you should have seen her - coming through the smoke she was draggin' that Navajo rug

Aye, Aye, Aye, Katie - shades of red and blue
Aye, Aye, Aye, Katie - whatever became of the Navajo rug and you

So every time I cross the sacred mountains - and lightning jumps above
It always takes me back in time to my long lost Katie love
But everything keeps on a-moving - everybody's on the go
Hey you don't find things that last anymore like a hand woven Navajo

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
Aye, Aye, Aye, Katie - whatever became of the Navajo rug and you
Whatever became of the Navajo rug and you
