Songfacts®:

  • "The Skies Are Blue In Colorado" was published by its composer, James S. Ramey in 1916 for the princely sum of 50c. Written in 2/4 time, it nearly became the State Song of Colorado ousting "Where The Columbines Grow," which was adopted as such on May 8 the previous year. Nearly, but not quite. >>
