h2o mp3: Portland Water: Michael Hurley

Here’s one just for our friends at the Portland Water Bureau (who we admire for blazing new trails in innovative public information and communications for water utilities!)

Michael Hurley is a singer/guitarist who has been making critically-acclaimed folk for over four decades. Portland Water is from the album Long Journey, released in 1976. (Hurley is reportedly a current resident of Astoria, Oregon.)

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