Listen (Eel River Song)

I heard this song came to Meredith Buck as she was participating in a women’s wilderness retreat where each participant was blindfolded and then asked to cross a river, following nothing but the sound of a drummer on the other side.

The second and third layers of the song take a litte time to learn, but the base part is so simple anyone can join in right away.

Thank you to Laurence Cole for introducing me to this gem.

Original song by Meredith Buck.



Part I:
Listen, listen, listen, listen

Part II:
Lay yourself down on the rocks now
Let your body down in the river
Listen for the drumming on the other side
Lose yourself in the meantime

Part III:
Let your body be your guide
Let the water decide
Lose yourself in the meantime
