Indy Minute: Songs to sing



Our Indy Minute features photos from readers and staff, plus a track from an 8-year-old local musician. JD's family was evacuated during the Waldo Canyon Fire, so he wrote a song about his experience. We're using it here with the permission of the musician and his father. And, in case you want to read the lyrics, here they are. Learn more on his YouTube page.

"Colorado Strong" by JD

Hot summer sun
Not a cloud in the sky
Every day in my town is
A Rocky Mountain high

But in a sudden flash
A plume of smoke appeared

No time to pack our bags
The blaze is at our heels


Colorado strong, Colorado pride
Standing tall on the mountain side
We won't give up, we'll stay and fight
Hand in hand, we're holding the line
Holding the line, holding the line

Verse 2

Blinded by the smoke
Marching up the hill
Firemen on full alert
Never standing still

C-130s overhead
Night skies burning red

Houses gone, we're filled with fear
But home is always here



Heartache can't break, heartache can't break
Our spirits rise, our spirits rise
