“big silly grin” there is a tiny town way up in the clouds from way up there you can’t see no ground the fun’s always present, so are all your friends you can unwrap everyday with a big silly grin the cloud mountain ranges no beginning or end you can hike to the top to watch birds fly higher and higher the highest of high when the town falls we’ll all go for a swim the atlantic, pacific, or mediterranean we can unwrap everyday with a big silly grin ~bo elledge

one born weak one strong one left to tend and one abroad fights but meek he tries to be something great in his father's eyes is this a soldier how the fear does burn in his chest like fire for the the funeral pyre home he returns a wanderer brothers once estranged they grow fonder love, only lasts so long trapped once again adam must move on is this a sojourn how the heart does yearn to be free to roam yet he's drawn back home them marched in file heaped in piles for the fire what did they do enough to make a man sick him looking on knowing there's something wrong what did I do how do they deserve all this

"catherine" crawling up the porch steps bloodied battered and bruised he fell for her right then this beauty who'd shown up abused the brother knew better he's a man who's cut from stone he saw through her loveliness right into the monster's soul such a broken bird hardly said a word and he was helplessly hers which made it so much worse when that gun went off cathy and the black curse she'll come peeking through your closets find those skeletons in the dark she'll make you love her so madly she'll make you want her so badly i'm just trying to tell you brother such a broken bird hardly said a word and he was helplessly hers which made it so much worse when that gun went off cathy and the black curse probe the black pool of water catherine probe the black pool of water ~dusty nichols

“sam” whiskey on his breath twinkle in his eye sam thinks this dustbowl heap is as good as mamma’s pie and she’s working dough with the roller making it jump and coil sams on the road to eden, to richer soil his dreams are oh so tall but the money all falls short he’ll find you all the water when his own place ain’t got a quart and he'll rock that new born babe in those gentle callused hands and he always speaks the truth because he's sam ~dusty nichols

about

Canyon Kids began as a recording project between songwriters Bo Elledge and Dusty Nichols. The two collaborators put together what they called a "Double EP," in which each songwriter contributed four songs of their own. The result: a harmony centric style, rooted in folk, and blended with other genres like rock, electronica, soul, and psychedelia. Their home is Jackson Hole Wyoming, where the surrounding mountainous landscape is a constant source of inspiration. Whether playing as an acoustic duo, or backed by their trusty rhythm section (John Wayne Harris Jr on drums and Adam Woolley on bass) these Canyon Kids aim to please with lush vocal harmony, big guitar sounds, mellow acoustic strums, and thoughtful arranging.
