I have been there in the summer
In the southern Rocky range
With the evergreen and the aspen
A quiet voice that doesn’t change

You know it’s almost like a dream
It’s a rock in the stream

To a lonely yellow moon

But it’s a rock in the stream

Life gives you everything, everything it has
And God comes to touch you
He’s gonna set you on the ground

In the Sangre de Cristo Mountains
Between the Hermit and the crest
Clear waters wash the valley
You know the soul can find its rest

But it’s a rock in the stream

Please take me back – oh, take me to my home
Please, please take me back – I’ll no longer roam

In the Sangre de Cristo mountains
Beneath the moon’s yellow gleam
With the evergreen and the aspen
You know I’m stopped for a dream
But it’s like a rock in an ever-moving stream
