Just a melancholy echo 
Lingering when the day is through 
It's the call of the canyon 
Once again I'm dreaming of you 
Every night I search the moonlight 
Up and down the river shore 
It's the call of the canyon 
Maybe I will see you once more 
Standing there alone by the ashes 
Of the fire we said would never die 
Will I ever find an ember 
Burning from the days gone by... 
Then I hear a lonely whisper 
As a little spark I see 
It's the call of the canyon 
Bringing back your answer to me!
