"LAS VEGAS, NEW MEXICO" ("The Real Las Vegas")
© 2011 Jim Terr Blue Canyon Music BMI

If I said we're heading to Vegas,
You'd prob'ly say that sounds like fun.
We'll drop a few dollars on poker,
Baccarat and twenty-one.

But if I said we'll also go skiing,
And fishing in a clear mountain stream,
You'd wonder if I had gone crazy,
Or was having a beautiful dream.

But there's a Vegas that's washed by sweet breezes
From the mountains and meadows they blow.
I'm talking 'bout the real Las Vegas,
Las Vegas New Mexico.

No big Strip, no bright-light casinos,
Just a warm and historic small town.
The smell of pinon and burritos,
Just a walk from anywhere to downtown.

No hot desert sun, but loads of good fun,
Where the sun sets with a beautiful glow.
I'm talking 'bout the real Las Vegas,
Las Vegas New Mexico.

BRIDGE: You've seen it in dozens of movies,
Sometimes for its beauty's own sake.
I'll be back there soon, dancing under the moon,
Or surfing across Storrie Lake.

Maybe we should keep it our secret,
It's a magical place as you know.
The real and original Vegas,
Las Vegas, New Mexico.
