about

I wrote this for an anti-mining fundraiser for Buckhorn Mountain in the Okanogan County Highlands, where a Canadian Mining company is trying to establish and expand an existing gold mine that is destroying the pristine mountain and its irreplaceable clean water.

Track Name: It's The Water
V1
THE REDWING BLACKBIRD NEEDS YOU
PRETTY LITTLE BIRD NEEDS ME TOO
SHE CAN’T CALL IF WE DON’T ANSWER
SHE CAN’T CALL IF WE DON’T ANSWER

THE CANADA LYNX NEEDS YOU
PRETTY LITTLE LYNX, NEEDS ME TOO
NEEDS THIS PLACE SAFE TO ROAM
BUCKHORN MOUNTAIN IS HER HOME

CHORUS
IT’S THE WATER/WHEN IT’S GONE IT’S LONG GONE
AND YOU CAN’T DRINK IT WHEN THE MINING’S DONE
THERE’S NOTHING GOLDEN, BUT THE SUN
THE SUN/OH THE BEAUTIFUL SUN

V3
EVERYTHING THAT WE HOLD DEAR
THE EARTH--SKY, AND BREATHING AIR
THINGS WE LOVE, WERE BOUGHT AND SOLD
MUCH MORE PRECIOUS THAN THE GOLD

V4
BUCKHORN MOUNTAIN NEEDS YOU
THEY’LL TAKE THE GOLD AND WHEN THEY’RE THROUGH
NOTHING’S LEFT, FOR ME AND YOU
SHE CAN’T LIVE IF WE DON’T RISE UP

CHORUS:
