Lyrics & Information

Taken from the superb 'Car Over The Lake' album. This song follows the journey of some early American explorers and describes in fascinating beauty the vast untouched American ranges, forests and mountains. The lyrics are just outstanding. Hope you enjoy it and this one is specially for you Dave!

Lyrics :-

Just about a hundred years or so ago
Ten men rode their way
Down the mighty Colorado
And as I read about their journey
I couldn't help but feel
A very similar yearning
To Mr Powell

And I wish that I
Could have been there with him

The way he talked about the river, I could tell
The revelations he must have felt within himself
The realization of what man's supposed to do
I feel it too

As they would ride over the waves
As they would glide over the waves

The river forged its way through canyons
That were so high
That the clouds would float within them
Cascade fountains moss surrounding

On through a gorge
Grand beyond description
And the river rolls

Like a whirlpool
Sets my mind to spinning

Can you imagine
Walls that went so high?
The sky would be nothing more than a single thin blue line
And the rocks would rainbow their way up to the sky

As they'd ride over the waves
As they would glide over the waves
You'd hear them singing, singing

Ahhh, ahhh, ahhh, ahhh,
Ahhh, ahhh, ahhh, ahhh...
