lyrics

no rain, no wind. only Appalachian sun
the first morning of freedom woke with the dulcet of the pipes and drums
I know the signal of the bell tower closely
and the music is a call to arms
rolling headlong down the mountain for the weekend
in a Bronco to a Marion farm
we'll stake down our tents
where the arrowheads and flints and the treasures of Catawba were laid
winter and spring were so fractious and cruel when we lost the Big Two
but the mournful season warms and fades

cooling in the belly of an Elk River shallow is an implicated source of fire
good thing we got our Old Timers with us if we rumble into the briar
run down the range for the cracker box remnants that we mercilessly pelletize
we built our summers on blackberry crushes and the power of the 4th of July
and though we may dream of adventures downstream
there's a menace on the river so vile
join with me, boys. we'll meet the goblin hordes
no match four our swords
as the Saviors Of The World run wild!
