The area where I was raised in in the town of Stanwood, Washington.  My father was a chiropractor, and mother was a nurse, and there were 5 children in my family, I was the second born.  One of the significant features of that region's topography was the Stillaguamish River.  Many songs in Americana music speak to the significance of various rivers, from "Swanee River", "I'd Jump the Mississippi", "Roll on Columbia", "River of Jordan", "Moon River", etc., but I wanted to write a song that gave tribute to the Stillaguamish River.  This song "Stillaguamish River Waltz" presents the river against the backdrop of a couple's romantic interaction with the river as the star. Here is a video with me singing the song, playing an octave mandolin that I built, and the words are listed below the video thumbnail. 

"Stillaguamish River Waltz" by David A. Day

1. Walking together along the river levy,

    Our fingers interlace like a vine.

   The moon shimmers on the swirling river surface,

   That glistens while our hearts entwine.

Ch:   The Stillaguamish river, forever on my mind,

        My heart so deeply was stirred.

        Though the seasons change, you still remain the same,

        You listen, but you say not a word.

2. We share our hopes, and our dreams for the future, 

     But the river just murmurs along.

     The falling of dusk, and the rising of the moon,

     We stay, that's where we belong.
