Paxton, Tom - Along The Verdigris Lyrics




Everywhere I look today everything is green
Oklahoma’s prettier now than I have ever seen
High up in the cottonwood an eagle makes her nest
Evening on the Verdigris, the time I love the best
Down along the Verdigris, the seasons come and go
Life is right beside you here and you can feel it flow
Down to meet the Arkansas then rolling to the sea
All the way to New Orleans from here on the Verdigris
Come and take a walk with me along the Verdigris
I’ll show you a sunset that’s the way it’s meant to be
Blackbird heading homeward at the closing of the day
Just like me, the Verdigris is where he means to stay
Down along the Verdigris, the seasons come and go
Life is right beside you here and you can feel it flow
Down to meet the Arkansas then rolling to the sea
All the way to New Orleans from here on the Verdigris
My first steps were taken where her muddy waters flow
All my life I’ve walked these hills, these hills are what I know
I tried life in Tulsa did not do a thing for me
I long to hear the birds in song along the Verdigris
Down along the Verdigris, the seasons come and go
Life is right beside you here and you can feel it flow
Down to meet the Arkansas then rolling to the sea
All the way to New Orleans from here on the Verdigris
Down along the Verdigris, the seasons come and go
Life is right beside you here and you can feel it flow
Down to meet the Arkansas then rolling to the sea
All the way to New Orleans from here on the Verdigris
Down to meet the Arkansas then rolling to the sea
All the way to New Orleans from here on the Verdigris
