Five hours from the city

But a million miles away

There’s a dusty road to heaven

That takes less than half a day


When life becomes a desert

Not a drop of hope around

Head straight to the country

Where what you’ve lost can all be found



Trust your life to a careful mountain pony

         She'll give her all just to get you to the sky

         Step by step your spirits will be lifted

         Into a sacred hideaway    

         Chilcotin Holiday, Chilcotin Holiday


Fresh air will surround you

Green as far as you can see

The blue skies will astound you

Wildlife running free


So get your things together

Hey, what I'm telling you is true

There's magic in those mountains

And it’ll make you feel brand new


CHORUS /Instrumental /CHORUS:


TAG:   So get out and get away

Chilcotin Holiday (repeat)
