Words & Music: Rattlesnake Annie

Goodbye to a River       (story behind the song)

Goodbye to a river 
Goodbye to the trees
Goodbye to the night birds that sing in the breeze
They’re building a dam and it’s too late to cry
Brazos de Dios, adios goodbye

I love you in springtime
When the wildflowers bloom
I love your summer skies
With its big yellow moon 
I love you in autumn
And when the whippoorwills call
I love your people 
Most of all

The men with the power
Say it’s just what we need
But I’ll tell you folks
It’s a matter of greed
They’ll dam up the water
And cover our land
Then chalk it all up
To advancement of man
