As sick and bleeding as I was she took me on her own
Brought me to the canyon where the sun poured down like rain
Her smiling 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 hoping 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 had 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
An outlaw is a hunted one with aprice 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 riding by my side
The girl from the canyon..
She was the only one
