Johnny Cash – Girl From The Canyon lyrics

The girl from the canyon smiled a smile that brought me home

As sick and bleeding as I was she took me on her own

Brought me to the canyon where the sun poured down like rain

Her smiling eyes and the mountain light I thought myself insane

These hills have seen me runnin' till my horse could hardly stand

Hidin' by day in the mountains movin' with the moon on the land

I'm hoping to find my freedom in a world that wants me dead

The girl from the canyon took and healed my wounds instead

The girl from the canyon she don't need to know what I had done

She laughed with me in the moonlight till the morning brought the sun

The girl from the canyon the girl from the canyon she was the only one

An outlaw is a hunted one with aprice upon his head

We're all outlaws in a way that is what she said

And so I left the canyon when I was strong enough to ride

The girl from the canyon she was riding by my side

The girl from the canyon..

She was the only one
