Title Ledgend of Billy's Mountain
Description How long he tracked the trapper No one really knows, A hunting party found him Frozen in the snow. They said it was an Indian Took his scalp off clean Billy left the valley, It was the last he was ever seen. That's when the legend started Billy and his Indian bride Are seen in the moonlight Standing side by side. Settled in that mountain pass. Linking the present to the past. when they named the mountain Billy, It was his to always keep They cut a highway in the hill Disturbing Billy' s sleep. No one seemed to notice The changes that were occurring. As if inside the mountain. Something had started stirring. As the snows began melting On the mountain cold and white A mud slide damned up the river In the middle of the night. It washed out the highway. It flooded out the town. For many miles around. In the little town named Thistle, Nestled below the hill No one lives there any more And no one ever will. 133
