Blue Okanagan

Between the mighty Monashee and the coast range of BC
Where the rivers flow like fountains, on their way out to the sea
And the apple blossoms splendour in no other land is found
For it's heaven, really heaven, when they're blooming all around

Chorus:         Blue water, blue sky, blue mountains so high
                Blue valleys and hills, blue rivers and rills
                Blue dreams in my heart, oh why did I part
                From the great Okanagan, so dear to my heart.

See the lonesome river, slowly winding it's way
Just like the river, I'm leaving today
I'm headin' back now, gonna feather my nest
In the Okanagan Valley, pride of the west Chorus:

This is a good song; there is sheet music but I haven't located an online copy.
Guest's lyrics are correct, but I don't want this song to be hard to find on mudcat, so I will repost the lyrics here (wrong procedure?).

Lyr. Add: BLUE OKANAGAN
Ivan Reynolds

Between the mighty Monashee and the Coast Range of B. C.
Where the rivers flow like fountains, on their way out to the sea
And the apple blossoms splendor in no other land is found
For it's heaven, really heaven, when they're blooming all around.

Chorus
Blue water, blue sky, blue mountains so high
Blue valleys and hills, blue rivers and rills
Blue dreams in my heart, oh why did I part
From the great Okanagan, so dear to my heart.

See the lonesome river, slowly winding its way
Just like the river, I'm leaving today
I'm headin' back now, gonna feather my nest
In the Okanagan Valley, pride of the West.

Chorus

Great wine country!

So happy to see this here. I remember this song well, but when I've gone back home (Penticton, B.C.) have asked others and no one even remembers that it ever existed. Thought maybe I was the only person left who knew it.

There is an online sheet music, Q. It is attributed to Buddy Reynolds whom it turns out is Ivan Reynolds. There is a neat bio about the song below the sheet music.

Happy New Year to you.

Thanks, Q.

Larry, I have spent a few hours looking for a music take and can't find one. IMO, unless someone who can read music and sing decides to do this, we ain't gonna hear it anytime soon.

It's apparently on a cd called:

Buddy Reynolds - A Canadian Country Music Pioneer

And I just emailed someone who might have a 78 rpm of it.

I'll keep you informed.

Thanks to Roy Forbes, I have an mp3 of Buddy Reynolds singing this song. Lots of echo.....but that was common to those Aragon 78's.

Hope it works!

Hmmm.......doesn't seem to work. I'll try again.


If it still doesn't work: Does anybody know how to send something that I have on my own computer on an mp3?

Also a correction: The echo comes from the transfers made from 78rpm to lp.....so this was probably taken from an lp version.

Sure, humbug.....if there's a way you can get the Buddy Reynolds version of the song (that I tried to attach) onto mudcat (sorry I don't know the technology) that would be great. Q might appreciate it.......since s/he said he hadn't found an online copy.   Others might too.   I have a copy downloaded onto my computer.

I am the wife of the son of Buddy Reynolds and am collecting any memorabilia from his music career for our children and I came across this thread. Very interesting. In my search I have found various websites with MP3s - not really great for our collection as we are collecting the sheet music and vinyls.

Hi Olivia! Blue Okanagan's a great song! I went to a country music 'jam' a few weeks ago and a woman sang it.   I think it's pretty popular here in Penticton.

That is absolutely amazing! I married Brent long after his father passed away so it's great to have all of these tidbits to share with our son about his grandfather! Thank you so much! :)

Hi Olivia

I may be able to help. I'm pretty sure I have a spare copy of at least one of Buddy's LPs. Have to dig in the basement to confirm. Drop me a line: waxhound at hotmail dot com.

Best,

Nice work everybody - what the mudcat's for!

Does anyone know the song titled "She was bred in the Okanagan" (where the salmon come to die). Phil Thomas collected one version in the mid-sixties.
