(C.W. McCall, Bill Fries, Chip Davis)

Way out in the canyons of the West, there's a wild river. The Spanish named it San Buenaventura; but we knew it as the Green.

It was daylight on the river but we couldn't see the sun
And we couldn't hear our voices through the roar
But we felt the boilin' current and our blood was runnin' cold
As we headed down the canyon of Lodore
And the gods were runnin' with us
On the day we ran the rapids of the Green

And we died a thousand times in that forty miles of hell
The longest day of life we'd ever seen
