River Run

Written by Greg Connor


River run away with me
I got my paddle in my hand
Take me far away from here
Take me to the sea

Take me somewhere I don’t know
Take me where the water goes
Start out fast, then go slow
Closer to the sea

Dip your paddle in the flow
Take your thoughts and gently let them go
You might think you’re in control
But the river takes you where it wants to go

Sunny days of sparkling blue
The river just wont wait for you
Come along enjoy the view
Set your spirit free

What a great song. I love the way the lyrics are phrased within the music. The mix allows each voice to sparkle, in keeping with the words of the last verse. And there's that perfectly-placed slide in the whistle solo that makes you go "yeah!"

Wow, I was already thinking what a special song this is & then then that flute solo just sealed it! Sure would love to hear an "extended mix" with more of that! I like where everything sits in the stereo field, this is a nice spacious mix...

Sweet, you always had a nice touch. Your flute playing is sounding good, better then I remember, but I don't recall a lot of songs with you playing it. What are you using for the percussions. I got a bamboo guiro and one that I think is made from some kind a of food that is hollow inside and no openings. Your sound similar to the bamboo guiro.
