  • ROLL ON COLUMBIA
  • by Woody Guthrie
  • tune Good Night Irene
  • Roll on, Columbia, roll on
  • Roll on, Columbia, roll on
  • Your power is turning our darkness to dawn
  • So roll on, Columbia, roll on
  • Green Douglas firs where the waters cut through
  • Down her wild mountains and canyons she flew
  • Canadian Northwest to the oceans so blue
  • Roll on Columbia, roll on
  • Other great rivers add power to you
  • Yakima, Snake, and the Klickitat, too
  • Sandy Willamette and Hood River too
  • So roll on, Columbia, roll on
  • Tom Jefferson's vision would not let him rest
  • An empire he saw in the Pacific Northwest
  • Sent Lewis and Clark and they did the rest
  • So roll on, Columbia, roll on
  • It's there on your banks that we fought many a fight
  • Sheridan's boys in the blockhouse that night
  • They saw us in death but never in flight
  • So roll on Columbia, roll on
  • At Bonneville now there are ships in the locks
  • The waters have risen and cleared all the rocks
  • Shiploads of plenty will steam past the docks
  • So roll on, Columbia, roll on
  • And on up the river is Grand Coulee Dam
  • The mightiest thing ever built by a man
  • To run the great factories and water the land
  • So roll on, Columbia, roll on
  • These mighty men labored by day and by night
  • Matching their strength 'gainst the river's wild flight
  • Through rapids and falls, they won the hard fight
  • So roll on, Columbia, roll on
  • @river @industry @west
