Echo’s Great Lakes music map map is growing with new reader contributions of songs inspired by the lakes. Check out the additions by clicking on the map found here.
Among our favorites of the new additions:
- Terry Brown We’ve got this Mucky Water (Clifford Stuehmer) A late entry that helps beef out Lake Huron’s representation.
- Gun Street Girl (Tom Waits) with the wonderful line: “Sittin’ by the Erie with a bull-whipped dog.”
- Galloping Goby Blues (David Jude) featuring this verse: “There’s gobies in Superior and St. Clair, Gobies running rampant everywhere, Gobies in the bathroom, gobies in the sink, they know where you’re going, they know what you think.”
