Steep Canyon

 Steep Canyon

Restless and reckless when I was young

I found a place up steep Canyon in 71

Back in the aspen trees and spruce

To celebrate rebellion and youth

I drank my first beer and puked

In Steep Canyon in 72

Lost my virtue high on weed

Listening to Credence in the backseat

Ran naked on cocaine in 78

In steep Canyon as it rained

We poached a buck mule deer

Ate like kings in the mountain air

Got punched out by my best friend

In steep canyon in 77

Little by little everyone left town

Now I’m the only one hanging around

Now just like when I was young… I get drunk

As I listen to Credence in steep Canyon

 And dream about the way it was when I was young
