From: Kenny B (inactive)

I am trying to complete the lyrics for "Along the Verdigris by Tom Paxton and I am stuck trying to complete a line in the chorus. Can anyone assist and pevent yet another mondegreen?
                     
                      Along the Verdigris
                                                       Tom Paxton
Everywhere I look today, everything is green,
Oklahoma's prettier now, than I have ever seen,
High up in the cottonwood, an eagle builds her nest,
Evening on the Verdigris is the time I love the best.

Chorus
Down along the Verdigris, the seasons come and go,
Life is like a             ,we can hear it grow,
Down beneath the Arkansas and rolling to the sea,

Thanks in advance
All the way to New Orleans, from here on the Verdigris.

Come and take a walk with me, along the Verdigris,
I'll show you a sunset, that's the way it's meant to be,
Blackbird heading homeward, at the closing of the day,
Just like me, the Verdigris, is where she means to stay. ....Chorus

My first steps were taken where the muddy water flows,
All my life I've walked these hills, these hills are what I know,
I tried life in Tulsa, did not a thing for me,
I long to hear the birds in song, along the Verdigris. .... Chorus

DT has more Paxton than anywhere else I have found. If we don't have it, chances are it's not on the web. He plays them pretty close to the vest. Perhaps a Paxton fan will know it and transcribe.

Along the Verdigris
Tom Paxton

Everywhere I look today, everything is green,
Oklahoma's prettier now, than I have ever seen,
High up in the cottonwood, an eagle makes her nest,
Evening on the Verdigris, the time I love the best.

Chorus:
Down along the Verdigris the seasons come and go
Life is right beside you here and you can feel it flow
Down to meet the Arkansas then rolling to the sea
All the way to New Orleans from here on the Verdigris

Come and take a walk with me, along the Verdigris,
I'll show you a sunset, that's the way it's meant to be,
Blackbird heading homeward, at the closing of the day,
Just like me, the Verdigris, is where he means to stay.

Chorus:

My first steps were taken where her muddy waters flow,
All my life I've walked these hills, these hills are what I know,
I tried life in Tulsa, did not do a thing for me,
I longed to hear the birds in song, along the Verdigris.
