Bobby Darin

East of the Rockies

 


 

 

      Johnny:
      I left my baby east of the Rockies
      North of the Rio Grande
      West of M’sippi
      South of Dakota land.
      When you hit Texas
      Take Route 33
      Turn right at Dreamy Valley
      Left at Lover’s Alley
      Standin’ ‘neath the apple tree.

      I'll make a little trip for my uncle
      But, I’ll return I know
      And I’ll remember
      Just where I has to go.
      East of the Rockies
      North of the Rio Grande
      West of M’sippi
      South of Dakota land.
      Just think of Texas
      Route 33
      Dreamy Valley
      Lover’s Alley
      Stop and see the apple tree
      Find my baby waitin’ there for me.

      Bobby:
      I left my baby east of the Rockies
      North of the Rio Grande
      West of Missouri
      South of Dakota land.
      When you hit upon Texas
      Take Route 33
      Turn right at Dreamy Valley
      Left at Lover’s Alley
      Standin’ ‘neath the apple tree.

      My boat is shovin' off and I’m sailin’
      But, I’ll return I know
      And I’ll remember
      Just where I have to go.
      East of the Rockies
      North of the Rio Grande
      Hey, west of M’sippi
      South of Dakota land
      Just think a Texas
      Route 33
      Dreamy Valley
      Lover’s Alley
      Stop and see the apple tree.

      Both:
      I’ll find my baby waitin’
      I ain’t procrastinatin’
      My baby’s waitin’ there for me.
