'Ice Mountains & Hairy Elephants' ©Krista Detor
Lyrics:

(Krista and Carrie Newcomer)
It must have been angels -- they must have come round
Holy fire burned through it -- this hole in the ground
It must be the work of heaven - Like stars falling from the sky
Angels, yes that must be why

(Tom Roznowski)
No shovel could dig -- no sharpness we know
Could cut through the rock and make the ground so
It must be the work of heaven - Like stars falling from the sky
Angels, yes that must be why

(Tim Grimm)
Now listen here, friends -- I'm here to survey
For good Uncle Sam, and I've just got to say
That long ago there was ice that covered this land
And gouged great big holes as it slid and it ran
Was no sign from heaven - No stars falling from the sky
Glaciers, yes that friends is why

(Michael White)
But I saw them myself -- when late I awoke
Angels at my window -- and to me they spoke
They said the hole is from heaven - From our home up in the sky
Angels, my friends, that is why

(Krista)
So we'd like to say to you, Mr. Government Man
That this hold in the ground was made by god's own hand
And your mountains of ice -- hairy elephant stories
Aren't fit for the ears of those versed in God's glories

(Carrie Newcomer)
We know what we see - And the mystery's promise
Our town here is blessed, now head back to your office...

(All)
It must have been angels -- they must have come round
Holy fire burned through it -- this hole in the ground
Left as a sign from heaven
Like stars falling from the sky
Angels, yes that must be why
Angels, yes that must be why

Album: 'Wilderness Plots' inspired by author Scott Russell Sander's book of the same name.
