lyrics

Huey Ohio Yawo
Huey Ohio Yawo

Great River Woman ebbs and flows
Where she stops nobody knows
Underground and undercover
And whichever road that I follow
I'm in a land of treasure troves
Waiting to be discovered

Huey Ohio Yawo
Huey Ohio Yawo
Huey Ohio Yawo
Huey Ohio Yawo

We are the ghosts of tomorrow
Planting the seeds that will follow
The good ways of their predecessors
We are tomorrow's ancestors

And I can feel all of my ancestors behind me
Sometimes quietly, sometimes shouting
And they remind me to be still, stop and listen, think, and feel
You are the result of the love of thousands

Huey Ohio Yawo
Huey Ohio Yawo
Huey Ohio Yawo
Huey Ohio Yawo

We are the ghosts of tomorrow
Planting the seeds that will follow
The good ways of their predecessors
We are tomorrow's ancestors
We are the ghosts of tomorrow
Planting the seeds that will follow
The good ways of their predecessors
We are tomorrow's ancestors
