Keith Whitley — Girl From The Canyon lyrics

The girl from the canyon smiled a smile that brought me home
As sick and bleedin' as I was she took me on her own
Brought me to the canyon where the sun poured down like rain
Her smilin' 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 hopin' 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've 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.

--- Instrumental ---

An outlaw is a hunted one with a price 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 ridin' by my side.

The girl from the canyon she don't need to know what I've 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.

She was the only one...
