Michael Hurley - The Portland Water

The Portland water they swillin' cold
and it swills my body but not not my soul
Oh the call up to Portland on the public telephone
said it sure is rainin' here in the state of Oregon

Up in the canyon lookin' down on the river
and the wind come blowin' and it makes me shiver
Oh the call up to Portland on the public telephone
said it sure is rainin' here in the state of Oregon

You see them injuns lookin down on the water
they say the river is the spirit's daughter
Oh the call up to Portland on the public telephone
said it sure is rainin' here in the state of Oregon

Honey honey honey honey whatcha tryin' to do
Why don't you signal when you are through
Oh the call up to Portland on the public telephone
said it sure is rainin' here in the state of Oregon

You can see quite a ways on the great hillside
And the people there livin' where the injuns died
Oh the call up to Portland on the public telephone
said it sure is rainin' here in the state of Oregon
