The Redding Song

Over on, blogger Marc Beauchamp posed a challenge -- 

".....a contest to come up with a telling or funny acronym that spells R-E-D-D-I-N-G."
I call it a Dream Assignment for a songwriter who loves Redding:

The Redding Song 

music and lyrics by Erin Friedman

R is for the river and the trails that run beside her

E is for the eagles raising hope and flying higher

D is for downtown dining:

         Art and music, beer and wine-ing


 D is for diversions

         Recreational excursions

         Golfing, skiing, fishing, hiking

         Gardening, boating, swimming, cycling

         Fly kites, tie flies,

         Sun shines

         Most days of the year

         Anything you like to do outside                          

         (That’s legal)

         You can do it here

I is for infernal heat that keeps the wimps away

N is for night lights on the Bridge at Turtle Bay

G is for the Gem of Northern California


Redding, Shasta County, USA
