Grand Canyon Farewell

by Brady Coleman

Genre: Folk/Acoustic

Lyrics

See the Colorado River flow
Through the land of the Navaho
The grandeur of the canyon walls
The rushing of the waterfalls
The splendor and the majesty
Is more than the mind can see
Black and gold and red and green
The oldest rocks you’ve seen
Racing waters roar below
As seen from the high plateau
The whispers of the wind at night
The glow of the stars so bright
Rainbows of sunlight dance
From Temple Butte to Phantom Ranch
Full moon on canyon walls
Beams on Lava Falls
– Yodel –
2
Ancient peoples called it home
High above the rapids foam
Trails, bridges, boats and caves
They came and left in waves
Coronado, POwell and John D. Lee
Names that live in history
Anasazi, Havasu
And the Hopi all came through
Glossy ravens, big horn sheep
Make their home in canyons deep
Cottonwoods and sycamores
Reach out on sandy shores
See the Colorado River flow
Through the land of the Navaho
The rushong of the water falls
Echos off canyon walls
– yodel –
