Verse:
------

C    Cadd4       C7add4  C9add4    C6add4 C6add9      C  Cadd4
Trina wears her wampum beads, she fills her drawing book with line

C    Cadd4      C7add4  C9add4    C6add4 C6add9 C  Cadd4
Sewing lace on windows' weeds and filigree on leaf and vine

C7add4  C9add4    C6add4 C6add9 C7add4  C9add4 A6/7sus4
Vine and leaf are filligree and her coat's a secondhand one

C   Cadd4  C6add4 C9add4    C6add4 C6add9  C   Cadd4
Trimmed in antique luxury, she is a lady of the canyon

C    Cadd4       C7add4  C9add4    C6add4 C6add9      C  Cadd4  C Cadd4
Do do do do do do do, do do do do do do do do do do do do do

Annie sits you down to eat, she always makes you welcome in
Cats and babies round her feet and all are fat and none are thin
None are thin and all are fat, she may bake some brownies today
Saying, you are welcome back, she is another canyon lady
Do do do do do do do, la la la la la la la la la la la la la

Estrella circus girl comes wrapped in songs and gypsy shawls
Songs like tiny hammers hurled at beveled mirrors in empty halls
Empty halls and beveled mirrors, sailing seas and climbing banyans
Come out for a visit here to be a lady of the canyon
Do do do do do do do, do do do do do do do do do do do do do

Trina takes her paints and her threads and she weaves a pattern all her own
Annie bakes her cakes and her breads and she gathers flowers for her home
For her home she gathers flowers and Estrella, dear companion
Colors up the sunshine hours pouring music down the canyon
Do do do do do do do, la la la la la la la la la la la la la

Coloring the sunshine hours, they are the ladies of the canyon
