1) Green Douglas firs where the water cuts through
Down the wild mountains and canyons she flew
Canadian north-west to the ocean so blue
It's roll on Columbia roll on

CH) Roll on Columbia roll on
Roll on Columbia roll on
Your power is turning our darkness to dawn
So roll on Columbia roll on

V2) Tom Jefferson's visions would not let him rest
An empire he saw in the Pacific north-west
St Louis, St Clarke, and they did the rest
it's roll on Columbia roll on

CH) Roll on Columbia roll on
Roll on Columbia roll on
Your power is turning our darkness to dawn
So roll on Columbia roll on

V3) At Bonnyville now there are ships in the locks
Waters have risen and hid all the rocks
Shiploads of plenty will steam past the docks
it's roll on Columbia roll on

CH) Roll on Columbia roll on
Roll on Columbia roll on
Your power is turning our darkness to dawn
So roll on Columbia roll on

V4) And up on the river is the Grand Coulee Dam
Mightiest thing ever built by a man
To run the great factories and water the land
It's roll on Columbia roll on

CH) Roll on Columbia roll on
Roll on Columbia roll on
Your power is turning our darkness to dawn
So roll on Columbia roll on
