play Beautiful Valleyfrom Paradox of Grace - Cogtone 010 - 2001
san juan mountains. the sangres, too.
me and this banjo are gonna play a little music.
we sure are happy to be here with you.
there's a grande ole river...starts in the valley.
telling it's story everywhere it goes.
it's sneaking past taos. holding back texas.
jumping the border down into mexico.
and there's a big volcano down in antonito
named after my father and i sure like that.
you can move away to boulder or out to california.
even new york city, but you keep coming back...
to the beautiful valley. the beautiful desert.
san juan mountains. mysterious light.
me and my banjo are gonna pick a lot of music.
we sure are happy to be here tonite.
