VALLEY OF DESPAIR
written & performed
by Danny Ray Thomas
 

VERSE 1

                D                                         G                  D
There's a valley in the west, with a history of despair.
                                                               E                          A
Forty-Niners tried to cross her, some met their maker there.
             D                                                   G                             Bm
For the desert wanted more, than most hardy souls could give.
      G                             D                            A                      D
For here a man would have to prove, he had a right to live.


CHORUS:

           Gbm                Bm
Death Valley, Death Valley.

         D

Your rocky peaks and furnace heat,

      E                             A

Are worrisome to my soul.

           D                     Bm

Death Valley, Death Valley.

         D

Your poisoned water and treacherous sink,

                 A                   D

Make me weary to the bone.


(Repeat CHORUS)


VERSE 2

                D                                                            G                   D
From the top of Last Chance Mountain, to Bad Water far below.

From the Panamints to the Funerals, this land took a heavy toll.

For the desert wanted more, than most hardy souls could give.

For here a man would have to prove, he had a right to live.

Are worrisome to my soul.

Your poisoned water and treacherous sink,

Make me weary to the bone.

Your poisoned water and treacherous sink,

Make me weary to the bone.
