Story behind the song
On Sat. June 20, 2009 ... the rest of our lives began, when Larry & I were led by God to property for sale along the Buffalo River in Linden, TN. It only took one glance for us to KNOW, this is where God wants us to spend the rest of our lives serving Him & the local community, and, we will ... Forever, on "My River" !
Lyrics
On Sat. June 20, 2009 ... the rest of our lives began, when Larry & I were led by God to property for sale along the Buffalo River in Linden, TN. It only took one glance for us to KNOW, this is where God wants us to spend the rest of our lives serving Him & the local community. When I told my dying adopted mom, my "Utter-Mutter" ...Georgia, about the property, she struggled & asked me on her deathbed, " Take me with you " all the while, knowing she would never make it to see "my" river, I told her she would always be with me, Forever, on my river & in my heart ! I now plan to purchase a Yellow ( Her favorite color koi fish ) Canoe & christen it, " Georgia " in her honor Then, she will ... forever, be with me ... on "my" river ! My beloved Georgia passed away on July 27, 2009 Stricken with grief, I could not even physically attend her service. In my silent suffering at home ... the river was calling me & gave birth to this song. Dedicated to Georgia Louise Stamey " Forever, with me ... on my river ! " " Tennessee ... Is Calling Me, Home " ( The River ) There's a river ... calling me, A blue sky ... far as I can see Oh, I believe it ... I have seen it. The river ... is calling me To the hills of ... Linden, Tennessee Oh, I believe it ... I have seen it, " Tennessee ... is calling me ... Home ! " * * * * ( Oohs & Ahhs ) The River ... is calling me To The hills of ... Linden, Tennessee Oh, I believe it ... I have seen it, " Tennessee ... is calling me ... Home ! " * * * * ( Musical Interlude - " Home " & Distant Indian sounding background vocals ) * * * * To where ... healing waters flow To where ... love is all you know To where ... hearts run wild Where you find yourself ... SO alive. There ... all pain is gone There's ... where you belong. And, once there ... you realize Life's taken you ... where you're SO alive. * * * * ( Guitar Interlude with river sounds & distant vocals) The river ... is calling me To the hills of ... Linden, Tennessee Oh, I believe it ... I have seen it, " Tennessee ... is calling me ... Home ! " * * * * ( Upbeat drums added to chorus with distant vocals ) To the River ... the River Oh, I believe it ... I have seen The river ... is calling me To the hills of ... Linden, Tennessee Oh, I believe it ... I have seen it, " Tennessee ... is calling me ... Home ! " * * * * ( Heavy drums section ) " Home " ...
