The west coast of Canada – British Columbia – is beautiful beyond words. So Joanna needed music to convey the imagery. Give a listen to the quality recording.

LYRICS

In the early morning light, the river sings to the dawn
and eagles shake the sleep from their wings
and cry out as they take flight.

In this paradise, along the shores of Howe Sound
the eagles come to hunt, the people come from around

The Shannon Falls flow endlessly
the Chief stands tall in Sea to Sky country.

Mountain, sea and sky
where the eagles fly.
In the winter, thousands make this their home.
Mountain, sea and sky
where the eagles fly.
Brackendale’s the place they soar so high.

The salmon have returned to spawn,
their life begins once again.

The eagles follow the salmon run
from Alaska to B.C. – they have no boundaries.

They listen to the ancient song, they circle, soar so free
and Garabaldi watches over all
the rivers run to the sea.
