FINALLY-- got those custom lyrics to "Goodnight Irene" re-written! It'll be a great way to end Sing-alongs on Thursday nights in summer now . . .
lyrics by K.M. Bowen & D.G. Gurler
(November 2016 - without the vodka this time)
sung to melody from 'Goodnight Irene'
Goodnight, Crow Wing . . .
Crow Wing good night, Crow Wing good night
Good night Crow Wing, good night Crow Wing
I'll see you in my dreams
Last Saturday we arrived here
So glad to drive through that gate
our cabin we saw, "let's unpack!" said Ma
but we'd already jumped in the lake ------(CHORUS)
I like to learn about logging lore
pine scented woods are fun to explore
a crooning loon, a lapping shore
all help my soul restore --------(CHORUS)
I stared at a fire for hours on end
I swam, I biked, I made a new friend
I love it here, I can't pretend
I wish this week would never end --------(CHORUS)
You should have seen all the fish I caught
at least that's what I'll say
Well, sure . . . they're small, not many at all
but . . . the big one got away ------------(CHORUS)
The Milky Way up above us soars
we share the weenies, the beans, the s'mores
it's so quiet up here, but, OH! my Lord . . .
listen to ALL those 'toots' and snores ----(CHORUS)
