D
Climbing the walls of rock churches
G
With the ravens and hummingbirds buzzing around
A
The bighorn sheep on their solemn perches
D
Are wondering what these crazy humans are doing in their town

G A
Colorado River
Bm G
She’ll make you shiver
A D
And her raging rapids turn you upside down

16 souls on an epic journey
The started clean and smelling so fine
By day 5 they were muddy and dirty
With no worries and no trouble on their minds

Colorado River
She’s a taker and a giver
And that Arizona sun makes her shimmer and shine

SOLO
G A Bm G G A D

On day 13 came their greatest challenge
The biggest and angriest rapid they call Lava Falls
Their skill and their courage was their only advantage
Over the monstrous boat sucking holes and cheese grating rocks

They rowed in with their oars a blazing
5 rafts looking for that perfect line
Their were voices a hollering and waves a thrashing
Loving that muddy water like it was fine wine

Colorado River
She’s a question and an answer
She’ll warm your heart and blow your mind

Days, weeks, decades and centuries
Millenia and eons, she’s seen it all
Past the dinosaurs and mammoths and all of the wreckage
Created by all of the creatures big and small

She turns matter into energy, essence into spirit
She is many and she is one
She is life and she is wonderful
Mysterious, scary and deliriously fun

Colorado River
She’ll make you shiver
And her raging rapids turn you upside down

Colorado River
She’s a taker and a giver
And that Arizona sun makes her shimmer and shine

Colorado River
She’s a question and an answer
She’ll warm your heart and blow your mind

Colorado River
In the summer and the winter
Let her flow for all time
Bm
Let her flow for all time
G A D
Let her flow for all time
