“They say Old Lizzie’s dead and gone,
But on Halloween Eve her spirit lives on.
No one ever had a friend as dear, nor as jovial as she.
She made her home among the foothills here,
Keeping house and keeping secrets,
At her Inn upon the Trail.
She served up moonshine next to supper,
With mirth and laughter on the side.
Herself an immigrant, a pioneer,
She welcomed all with open arms.
“”Congenial”” they say, “”with a twinkle in her eye.””
None in this village
Could ever resist her charms.
And now when Harvest comes around,
And thousands come to see,
She smiles with pride at her little town,
Which is so much her legacy.
