Roll, Columbia, Roll


There's a great and peaceful river in a land that's fair to see
Where the Douglas-fir tree whispers to the snow-capped mountain breeze
Cliffs of solid granite and the valley's always green
This is just as close to heaven as my traveling feet have been

Roll, Columbia, won't you roll, roll, roll
Roll, Columbia, won't you roll, roll, roll


Stand upon her timbered mountain, look across her silver strand
See the crops and orchards springing to the touch of nature's hand
And it's further up the river where your eye will meet the skies
Where you'll see the steel and concrete of the big Grand Coulee rise

There at Priest and Cascade Rapids men have labored day and night
Matched their strength against the river in its wild and reckless flight
Boats and rafts were beat to splinters but it left men dreams to dream
Of that day when they would conquer the wild and wasted stream

Uncle Sam took the challenge in the year of '33
For the farmers and the workers and for all humanity
Now river, you can ramble where the sun sets in the sea
But while you're rambling, river, you can do some work for me

Now there's full three million horses charges with Coulee' 'lectric power
Day and night they'll run the factory and they never will get tired
Well, a coal mine gets dug out and an oil well it runs dry
But Uncle Sam will find his power where the river meets the sky

(1957)

Nuevo cancionero y discografía

el 22/05/2018

Presentamos el quinto de nuestros cancioneros y discografías anunciados en el marco de nuestro vigésimo aniversario. María Dolores Pradera siempre ha reivindicado —incluso cuando no estaba de moda— la obra de los grandes autores populares hispanoamericanos, desde José Alfredo Jiménez a Chabuca Granda, pasando por Atahualpa Yupanqui o Carlos Cano. Hoy la reivindicamos a ella.

6 Festival Jardins de Pedralbes Barcelona 2018

por Carles Gracia Escarp el 14/06/2018

Mariza renovó su idilio con Barcelona en un concierto en el Festival Jardins de Pedralbes en el que presentó su nuevo disco de título homónimo Mariza, una obra que refleja bien el equilibrio artístico y personal de la cantante portuguesa en el presente, un espejo de calma hecho canción.
