Spring Sing Sierra

(Verse) 3/4
D Dmaj7
A lavish of lupins
G D
Of poppies and mustard
Dmaj7
The bloom of the broom
G A
Hop scotch up the hills
D Dmaj7
Lilac and orchids
G D
Yerba Santa and dills
G D A D
The free flowing Yuba frolics and swirls

(Chorus) 4/4
G D G D
Oh the ring, oh the ring of Winter’s hopes
G D A
Sings the Sierra on the Western slopes.
G D G D
Oh the ring, oh the ring of Winter’s hopes
G D A D
Sierra Spring on the Western slopes

Flea markets and yard sales
Big hopes for the bargain
A flirt with no shirt
Pops up over night
Car shows and bikers
And Women in Black
The fast flowing Yuba bares its free back.

(Chorus)

A cubit of compost
A letter to Congress
Dirt’s awake on the rake
A drag on the hoe
Pinch back the grape vine
Let loose the berries
Folks are awake to take back the sweet land.

(Chorus)
