Spring Is Alive
Spring is alive
Deep in the forest
High on a mountain
Thunder and lightning

We came to Carolina
It’s a long hard road
With little more than courage
A little less than nothin’

We have found the Smokie Mountains
And life is good

In Carolina
Where the foxfire glows
Down in a holler
So it goes
You Are
You are every morning sunrise
You are every peal of laughter

You are all the falling leaves
You are everyone who greaves
You are all my unknown secrets
You are known in lover’s kisses
You are where the stars are shining
You are why the war is over


Whisper the wind all through the night
Whisper the wind into the night
Whisper the wind Brothers and sisters
Whisper the wind love one another


In Carolina
Where the foxfire glows
Down in a holler
So it goes
Over a hundred years ago
Far across the water

We came seeking independence
Is a heavy load
From the heather of the highlands
Hard work and simple ways
life is good
Spring is alive
Deep in the forest
High on a mountain
Thunder and lightning

This song appears on three albums, and was first released on the Different
Denver Collection - Rocky Mountain High Albums.


In Carolina
Where the foxfire glows
Down in a holler
So it goes
Over a hundred years ago
Far across the water

We came seeking independence
Is a heavy load
From the heather to the highlands
Hard work and simple ways
life is good
Spring is alive
Deep in the forest
High on a mountain
Thunder and lightning


You are every rain
You are every cry of pain
You are all the summer flowers
You are everyone rejoicing

You are all my hidden fears
You are seen in childhood tears
You are where the rainbow ends
You are how the peace begins
Whisper the Wind
Whisper the wind over the water
Whisper the wind along the canyon

Whisper the wind all the same
Whisper the wind your precious name
Spring Is Alive (Reprise)
Spring is alive
Deep in the forest
High on a mountain
Thunder and lightning
So it goes
