Little River Canyon

This song is by Pierce Pettis and appears on the album State Of Grace (2001).

Little River Canyon, swimming with the snakes
Pretty green water so cold it makes you ache
Even on the hottest Alabama days
When girls would lie on terry cloth and bake

So deep into that landscape, we did not realize
That we had been talking in accents all our lives
Just a vague sense of the world passing us by
Like out of state tags rolling down I-59

This song is just an echo
This song is just a ripple trom a stone (that was)
Tossed into the water long ago

At the height of adolescence, totally insane
With heads more full of hormones than brains
Straightening out those curves, flying down those hills
Driving so fast it's a wonder we weren't all killed

Cars parked on the canyon rim any weekend night

You could hold your baby like a floatation device
Bobbing to the surface, coming up for air
In a tangle of tongues and teeth and hair

This song is just an echo
This song is just a ripple from a stone (that was)
Tossed into the water long ago

Some left for college, same could only dream
Hanging around town, still wearing their high school rings
I avoid their faces when I come to town
Man, I still don't know which one of us has let the other down

Little River Canyon in a crazy quilt of trees
I'm looking at that smokey water choked with fallen leaves
Fallen like a million childish dreams
And just washed away like nothing in that frigid stream

This song is just an echo
This song is just a ripple from a stone (that was)
Tossed into the water long ago
