Whiskey River - Willie Nelson's opening song for his shows for years and years now. Greg Brown - Laughing River Greg Brown - Just By Myself: "And I'll go fishin'-- get with the flow. I know a river in Idaho. I'll catch a big trout and let him go, and I'll be happy just by myself. Hey-ay-ay-ay-ay" (BTW, "Dream Cafe" from Greg Brown is a great album and has both of these songs on it). Yonder Mt String Band - Follow Me Down to the Riverside. Killer breakneck bluegrass/jamgrass. Find a live version (pretty easy, check archive.org in their live music archive). And another vote for the "Good Ol' Grateful Dead" - Breakdown Palace is one of the best songs of all time. A great jumping off point for anybody interested in learning more about this classic American band. I'm listening to the elements when I'm in the water - the music is there if you listen for it.
