PHANTOM RANCH

(TO THE TUNE OF MARGARITAVILLE)

BY JULIE CHURCH AND BOB JOHNSON ©2003

 

 

Doiní north kaibab,

They said it werenít that bad.

14 miles and its all been down hill.

Doiní the switchbacks,

Carriní my backpack.

Itís 3 p.m. And itís hotter than hell.

 

Dreaming of  ice cold beer down at the phantom ranch

Hopiní the cantina, isnít yet closed,

Somebody said itís only 2 miles ahead,

I donít know, that was 5 hours ago.

 

Toe nails are achiní

Bodyís been bakiní

Iím likiní the looks of that cool lookiní stream.

Peeliní my socks off,

My moleskins all fell off,

Raw spots on my feet, made it hard not to scream.

 

Dreaminí of  ice cold beer down at the phantom ranch.

Hopiní the cantina, isnít yet closed.

Somebody said itís only two miles ahead,

I donít know, that was 5 hours ago.

 

Spent the day chilliní

Cantina was jamminí

Wrote up this song, we all sang along.

My beer crave abbated,

This song got created,

We made some new friends they were from michigan.

 

Singing along with friends down at the phantom ranch.

Drinking beer and playiní with this old guitar,

Hikiní out tomorrow on the bright angel trail,

And i hope, that it wonít be too hard.

 

Iíve hit the devilís corkscrew

Feeling the hiking dew

Wishin i was closer to indian garden

 

The temperatures climing

And so are we whining

The aches and the pains are starting anew

 

Dreaminí of  ice cold beer at bright angel lodge.

Hopiní the cantina isnít out of beer.

Somebody said itís only two miles ahead,

I donít know, that was 5 hours ago.

 

The mule shitís increasing

The sssun, itís a beating

The flys will consume us if we stop

 

We are gettin nearer

The arches are much clearer

We might just make it to that great bar

 

Wasted away again in bright angel lodge

Drinking beers with friends from afar

Some people said it was only 2 miles ahead

But we know, it was too damn far.
