Songs About Rivers
Songs With Specific Rivers in Their Lyrics
Quite a few songs have been written about rivers. This is a list of songs with the name of a specific river in the lyrics. This was a brainstorm and research project that came from a bride wanting to name each table at her wedding after a specific river, then play a song about that river when announcing that that table should go to the buffet. It didn't turn out perfectly. Quite a few songs about rivers are a little too sad for a wedding, but it makes an interesting list.
