Cuyahoga

  1. Before Sedona, there was Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio.

    The Cuyahoga River runs through my old city.

    Below are some pics of my son and I at the Gorge Metro Park in Cuyahoga Falls. It was practically in my back yard. I miss a lot of things about Ohio. But honestly, I don't miss shoveling snow.

    Cuyahoga by R.E.M. is about my old river.



    Let's put our heads together and start a new country up
    Our father's father's father tried, erased the parts he didn't like
    Let's try to fill it in, bank the quarry river, swim
    We knee-skinned it you and me, we knee-skinned that river red

    This is where we walked, this is where we swam
    Take a picture here, take a souvenir

    This land is the land of ours, this river runs red over it
    We knee-skinned it you and me, we knee-skinned that river red
    And we gathered up our friends, bank the quarry river, swim
    We knee-skinned it you and me, underneath the river bed

    Cuyahoga
    Cuyahoga, gone

    Let's put our heads together, start a new country up,
    Underneath the river bed we burned the river down
    This is where they walked, swam, hunted, danced and sang,
    Take a picture here, take a souvenir


    Rewrite the book and rule the pages, saving face, secured in faith
    Bury, burn the waste behind you

    This land is the land of ours, this river runs red over it
    We are not your allies, we can not defend
