Where The Cedar River Flows

My song about Cedar Rapids, Iowa and the Flood of 2008. I wrote the words and music. I want to thank those who posted pics to the KCRG site. I live in California but am an Iowan at heart. Someone asked if I could write a song for Cedar Rapids after my Ode To The Sutliff Bridge Song. So here is my song.

Brings back great memories of a burger and a POP sitting on the steps of the Sutilff Tavern/grill watching the river go by. I Actually rode my Motorcyle over that bridge many times before it was closed . --Sad to see its gone.

Not looking for recognition. Just feel driven to do something. I"ve been thru a lot myself and this is actually helping me cope with the death of my love and friend. Maybe he is my driving force.
