The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing: 30DaySinger.com
Well, the world has seven wonders, the travelers always tell Some gardens and some towers, I guess you know them well But the greatest wonder is in Uncle Sam's fair land It's that King Columbia River and the big Grand Coulee Dam She heads up the Canadian Rockies where the rippling waters glide Comes a-rumbling down the canyon to meet that salty tide Of the wide Pacific Ocean where the sun sets in the west And the big Grand Coulee country in the land I love the best In the misty crystal glitter of that wild and windward spray Men have fought the pounding waters and met a watery grave Well, she tore their boats to splinters but she gave men dreams to dream Of the day the Coulee Dam would cross that wild and wasted stream Uncle Sam took up the challenge in the year of Thirty three For the farmer and the factory and all of you and me He said, "Roll along Columbia. You can ramble to the sea But river while you're ramblin' you can do some work for me" Now in Washington and Oregon you hear the factories hum Making chrome and making manganese and light aluminum And there roars a mighty furnace now to fight for Uncle Sam Spawned upon the King Columbia by the big Grand Coulee Dam In the misty crystal glitter of that wild and windward spray Men have fought the pounding waters and met a watery grave Well, she tore their boats to splinters but she gave men dreams to dream Of the day the Coulee Dam would cross that wild and wasted stream
