Altitude Adjustment

Album: On The Rocks (2017)
  • And I need an altitude adjustment
    Get higher and higher 'til I feel nothing
    Blue mountain air and good clean lovin'
    And I need an altitude adjustment

    Jammed up again in the music city
    Damn I'm gonna sit here and write your diddies
    I'm backing up my six string dreams and heading out west
    This big city pill's a little hard to swallow
    Turning this steering wheel to Colorado
    Let this rocky mountain highs put this Tennessee blues to rest

    I need an altitude adjustment
    Get higher and higher 'til I feel nothin'
    Cold mountain air and good clean lovin'
    And I need an altitude adjustment
    And I wanna feel just like John Denver
    All of my worries, I can't remember
    Out here in Boulder, I can't get busted
    I need an altitude adjustment

    I'll be down in Durango just doing my thing
    Go hitch a ride to tell you right where I know the lingo
    Found a dreamboat and steamboat, and black diamond fresh powder queen
    I asked for a dime and she gave me a dozen
    I'm in Grand Junction and I can barely function
    But the sky is baby blue and the grass is green, if you know what I mean

    I need an altitude adjustment
    Get higher and higher 'til I feel nothing
    Cold mountain air and good clean loving
    I need an altitude adjustment
    I wanna feel just like John Denver
    All of my worries, I can't remember
    Out here in Boulder I won't get busted
    I need an altitude adjustment

    Let's go, boys

    I need an altitude adjustment
    Get higher and higher 'til I feel nothing
    Cold mountain air and good clean lovi'
    I need an altitude adjustment
    I wanna feel just like John Denver
    All of my worries, I can't remember
    Mountain border I won't get busted
    I need an altitude adjustment
    Down in Bolder I can't get busted
    I need an altitude adjustment Writer/s: Cameron Duddy, Jess Carson, Mark Wystrach, Rhett Akins, Rodney Clawson
