Geez, yeah, and I knew "Grand Coulee Dam" was to the tune of Wabash Cannonball. Now what's the chorus? Hmmmm...

I actually have the song on CD, but thanks for the link as it jogged my memory. It's too bad the Bonneville Power Authority never used his songs at the time. As I recall he did 28 songs in 30 days. If one song was good, it would have been worth it for them. However, they got a bunch of classics, many of which could be Pacific Northwest anthems. I bought the documentary video in Okemah--the one that talks about Woody's project for the Power Authority. However, shortly after I got the tape home, it broke. Errrr!
