Along the Verdigris


D D7 G G D7/F# Every where I look today everything is green. G Oklahoma's prettier now than I have ever seen. C/G High up in the cottonwood an eagle makes her nest; D+11/A G Evening on the Verdigris, the time I love the best. C G Down along the Verdigris, the seasons come and go. D/F# G Life is right beside you here and you can feel it flow. C G Down to meet the Arkansas then rolling to the sea. D/F# G 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 to meet the Arkansas then rolling to the sea.
All the way to New Orleans from here on the Verdigris.

(Words and music by Tom Paxton, 1993)
