There’s a place where we go
Where the pace of it speeds to slow
To think back with wonder
And see over yonder I know
Yes. She’s Grand
She’s the best in the West that ‘Tivvy’ Canal.
For the folks that still need her
And those pleased to see her right now.

Time seems to stand still
And the peace says it all
With welcoming birdsong
From Spring to the fall
Those walks in the summer
And those colours we’ll see
Paints a picture of beauty
For you and for me

There’s a place where we go
Where the pace of it speeds to slow
To think back with wonder
And see over yonder I know
Yes. She’s Grand
She’s the best in the West that ‘Tivvy’ Canal.
For the folks that still need her
And those pleased to see her right now.

She will still be here
When we’re all long gone.
And those who will follow
Will join in her song
Traditions and memories
Reflecting the past
Remembering this gem of mid Devon
Was meant to last

There’s a place where we go
Where the pace of it speeds to slow
To think back with wonder
And see over yonder I know
Yes. She’s Grand
She’s the best in the West that ‘Tivvy’ Canal.
For the folks that still need her
And those pleased to see her right now.
