Ian Tyson – Cottonwood Canyon Lyrics


The cottonwood tree she cries to me
Make 'em leave it in the ground
And we'll sleep in the sand far below
Down where the clear waters flow
Down where the clear waters flow Have I waited too long? Have the drillers come? Tonight I hear the call of Cottonwood Canyon
Listen, you can hear it on the wind
Red tail hawk makin' circles
High above the canyon walls
Where I slept in the sand far below
Down where the clear waters flow
There ain't no cell phone towers in Cottonwood Canyon
Maybe some old coyote will give you a call
The cottonwood tree she sings to me
Songs of long ago
And I slept in the sand down below
Down where the clear waters flow
Can I find my way back to Cottonwood Canyon?
