Salt River Canyon

G           D/F#           Em           C           D           Em

She came down to the Salt River Canyon with a slow burning fire in her eyes

G           D/F#           Em           C           D           Em

I was overcome by a yearning to hold her and tell her sweet lies


I heard tell of a prospector’s daughter who lived on the high timberline

Flames of passion have never burned hotter when the moment her sweet lips touched mine


G           D

And our love filled the salt river canyon that night

C           D

Her golden hair shown in the silvery moon light

G           D

As we held each other the stars in the sky

C           D           Em

Could not compare to the fire in her eyes

C           D           Em

The fire in her eyes.


Well she’s wild like the raging Salt River and in the morning she’ll be moving on

And I know I can hold her forever If i could just hold back the dawn.
