  • Just about a hundred years or so ago
    Ten men rode their way down the mighty colorado
    And as I read about their journey
    I couldn't help but feel a very similar yearning
    To mr. powell
     
    And I wish that I could have been there with him
    The way he talked about the river I could tell
    The revelations he must have felt within himself
    The realization of what a man's supposed to do, I feel it too
    (FLUTE SOLO)
     
    As they would ride over the waves
    As they would glide over the waves
     
    The river forged its way through the canyons
    That were so high that the clouds would float within them
    Cascade fountains moss surrounded
    On through a gorge grand beyond description
    The river rolls
     
    And like a whirlpool it sets my mind to spinnin'
    Can you imagine walls that went so high
    The sky would be nothing more than a single thin blue line
    And rocks would rainbow their way up to the sky
     
    As they would ride over the waves
    As they would glide over the waves
    You'd hear them singing, singing
     
    Ahhh, ahhh, ahhh, ahhh,

  • Richard from Phoenix, AzOMD has had some major talent and a wonderful catalog of great songs....Too bad they're only known for Jackie Blue. Their first 4 albums are all full of great stories of Americana...and learning to enjoy the simple things in life! Would love to see them tour again with all the founding members!
