Note: For those that know, I'm not sure if Greg wrote this song, 
or if he's the one who solidified it as a tradition. Regardless, 
as Greg McKee passes into myth and legend let the credit for this 
song go to him. His voice is the one which rings through most of 
our ears when we recall the passed days under the pines at 
Camp Greenville high listening to his old out of tune guitar 
and deep bellow that resonated with the wood and water.
