1972

It was 1972

Organic farmers

Living off the land

In Miracle Valley


Skipping stones on McConnell Creek

Me and my brothers

Singing all the songs we knew

Driving down Sylvester Road in that old truck called Blue

It was 1972


Sitting on the shores of Allan Lake

Drinking from the silent spring

Feeding the soil not the plant

Some know they will and some say they can't


We were living off the land

And standing on sacred ground

We were proud to take a stand

And when the sun came shining through

The world felt so brand new

It was 1972


Driving down the I-5

Living in Dewdney Trunk

Rolling in the mud on Strawberry Island

Laughing with the family in the sun


Feeding the soil not the plant

Some know they will and some say they can't


We were living off the land

And standing on sacred ground

We were proud to take a stand

And when the sun came shining through

The world felt so brand new

It was 1972

It was 1972

1972
