Oh River

The Bird Sings Oral Tradition Song Library

Oh River

This a new simple and beautiful layer song from Karisha Longaker of MaMuse. This hasn’t been released on any of their studio albums and is an easy, delicious one to teach in community singing groups of all sizes and levels of experience. It is arranged here in 5 parts for Wholehearted Chorus, with one or two audible additional soprano parts that can be added by soloists or additional divisions of the chorus.

Finding my way, finding my way, finding my way,
Finding my way, finding my way back home

Boom bi- bitsa bitty bitta (x8)

Oh river, I hear you, feel you calling me
Oh river, who will I be when I reach the sea

I–– I am home (x2)
