Thread Name: Lyr Req: Dam collapse tragedy songs
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Dam collapse tragedy songs
Hi all,
I'm looking for the lyrics to a song I used to sing at camp (in the 60s) about the creation of Bagnell Dam on the Osage River in Missouri. It begins:

"Once there was a town and Zebra was its name
Even though it disappeared its had its share of fame"

The song goes on to chronicle the deliberate flooding of the town to create a hydroelectric dam, and the recreational Lake of the Ozarks.

I could really use some help getting this wormhole out of my ear... hoping having the full lyrics might help.
