Kullen and I wrote this song in the car while driving from Texas up to Tennessee on a tour. We passed the Buffalo River and while Kul was driving, I picked out a tune on the Ukelele and we started brainstorming!


Buffalo Bayou

Let me take you to the place I love to go,
In the country down by the valley below.

They call it Buffalo Bayou,
A place where our love can grow.
I’m longing to be there by you.
Where the water flows.

From my window you can see Tennessee.
With her green trees far as the eye can see.
We're almost to Buffalo Bayou
A place where our love can grow.
I’m longing to be there by you.
Where the water flows.

We followed the path through the forest to the water so blue
A 1000 starlings took flight as I reached out for you.

You took my hand, and you said follow me.
to a land where our love be can roam free.
