Now Be Thankful

thanksgiving

Today, Radio Riel thanks you all with music in hon­or of the Amer­i­can Thanks­giv­ing hol­i­day.

You will hear a mix of all of the gen­res that we usu­al­ly play on Radio Riel’s Main stream such as con­tem­po­rary, clas­si­cal, new age and ear­ly music.


Over the riv­er, and through the wood,
To Grandfather’s house we go;
the horse knows the way to car­ry the sleigh
through the white and drift­ed snow.

Over the riv­er, and through the wood,
to Grandfather’s house away!
We would not stop for doll or top,
for ’tis Thanks­giv­ing Day.

Over the riv­er, and through the wood—
oh, how the wind does blow!
It stings the toes and bites the nose
as over the ground we go.

Over the riv­er, and through the wood—
and straight through the barn­yard gate,
We seem to go extreme­ly slow,
it is so hard to wait!

Over the riv­er, and through the wood—
When Grand­moth­er sees us come,
She will say, “O, dear, the chil­dren are here,
bring a pie for every­one.”

Over the riv­er, and through the wood—
now Grandmother’s cap I spy!
Hur­rah for the fun! Is the pud­ding done?
Hur­rah for the pump­kin pie!

~ Lydia Maria Child
