Jump 'long the creekside
The rock's crooked line
Fun girls, you'll hear it
The days open wide

And horses trot faster 'til sparrows fall down
But you just fall, laughin', to the snow on the ground
You grew up by playin' the valley so wild
And that's why
You're so beautiful now

And, dancin' your bike to the lonesome, young mare
You call up her owner; say your heart will be there
You'll build a collection of scars on your knees
To learn how to count the impossible trees
You grew up by climbin' the birches so high
And that's why
You're so beautiful now

And we live so close that we probably seen
The same bird, the same time
They solumnly scream
One day, I'll find just that friend who can see
All this weird beauty
Thrown right at me

Growin' by playin' the valley so wild
And that's why
You're so beautiful now

    I made my best to spanish translation, please, correct if any mistakes:

    Saltas a lo largo del arroyuelo
    sobre las siluetas encrestadas de las rocas
    la diversión riza tus cabellos
    y los días se abren ante ti
    y los caballos trotan más veloces hasta hacer caer a los gorriones
    pero tú solo caes sobre la nieve riendo.

    Creciste jugando tan salvaje en el valle
    que por eso
    eres tan bella ahora

    Y, danzando en tu bicicleta hacia la joven yegua solitaria
    llamas a su propietario; dicen que tu corazón estará ahí. Tienes una colección de cicatrices en las rodillas
    que adquiriste aprendiendo a contar los árboles imposibles

    Creciste subiéndote a los abedules tan alto
    que por eso
    eres tan bella ahora

    Y vivimos tan cerca que probablemente hayamos visto
    el mismo pájaro, al mismo tiempo
    silbando solemnemente

    Un día, encontraré ese amigo que pueda ver
    toda esta extraña belleza
    lanzada hacia mí

    Creciste jugando, tan salvaje en el valle
    que por eso, ahora, eres tan bella
