I’ll show you heights of stone and steel, a city brave and bold
That the rainfall turns to silver and the sunset turns to gold
Nestled down in velvet mountains and water’s satin foam
Where alchemy is everyday routine
And of all the jewels I’ve seen
Emerald green is the color of my home

I love a song that paints a fantasy picture of a real place.  “Emerald Green,” a song for the Pacific Northwest, by Vixy & Tony
