She was born at midnight, the moment that the storms came
The ground was thirsty, it was cracked and bare
She was magic and everybody knew it
She had blue eyes and warm, golden hair

And we sang
Halona, oh Halona, Halona, oh Halona
Halona Princess of the Prairie Rain
Halona, oh Halona, Halona, oh Halona
The sky surrenders when we sing her name

She brought the waters, a blessing for the season
The corn was planted and that river ran wide
With harvest coming there was one thing we still needed
Warmer days so that corn could grow high

And we sang
Halona, oh Halona, Halona, oh Halona
Halona Princess of the Prairie Sun
Halona, oh Halona, Halona, oh Halona
Bring us the fire from the sky above

Her eyes are pools of water, her hair is sunlight too
That child has many fathers– the Stars, the Wind, the Moon
We have a celebration the eighth October night
We hold our bounty up high

And we sing
Halona, oh Halona, Halona, oh Halona
Halona Princess of the Prairie Rain
Halona, oh Halona, Halona, oh Halona
The sky surrenders when we sing her name

Halona, oh Halona, Halona, oh Halona
Halona Princess of the Prairie Sun
Halona, oh Halona, Halona, oh Halona
Bring us the fire from the sky above
