One thought on ““Over the River and Through the Wood” #Music

  1. This is delightful. It made me feel like I am a kittle girl, out skipping down the sidewalk around my grand-parent’s home. The trip from our home to theirs was only about 2 miles – and we drove through the woods all the way. It is that same trip through the woods, on River Road, that I live on today – I passed this house in the woods on my way to and from Grandma’s house in all seasons. What a happy memory your song brought to me today. Thank you!
