The Portland Song by Jewel – June 25, 2010 – Oregon Zoo

In the Willamette valley
With the Willamette river running through
Two men flipped a coin and the Portland penny into the air flew

All kinds came to this town
Outdoorsmen, outlaws, businessmen and hippies
They each had their own pet name for their favorite city

You may call it Stumptown, Bridgetown, Rip City, Little Beirut, Beervana, Beertown, PDX or Soccer city
But Portland, Oregon will always be the City of Roses to me

America’s greenest city
Where diverse cultures still get along today
Drag queens, cowboys, straights and gays
There’s bullriding here but also world naked bike ride day

You may call it Stumptown, Bridgetown, Rip City, Little Beirut, Beervana, Beertown, PDX or Soccer city
But Portland, Oregon will always be the City of Roses to me

There are gastropubs and trailblazers and museums and the Max Light Rail
And a million microbreweries and lots of hiking trails and chinese garden
An aerial tram and lots of shopping and DYI, Youth Culture too
And lots of churches too where preachers all pray for us
But there’s more stripclubs per capita than Las Vegas
But by far my favorite thing to do is visit the zoo

You may call it Stumptown, Bridgetown, Rip City, Little Beirut, Beervana, Beertown, PDX or Soccer city
But Portland, Oregon will always be the City of Roses to me
Yeah the City of Roses to me

Athens, Georgia historian and author Charlotte Thomas Marshall gives a slide tour of Oconee Hill Cemetery, where she has given walking tours for decades. The program was originally presented at Athens-Clarke County Library in May 2016, and this version was recorded at the Winterville Center for Community and Culture in November 2016.

Across the street from Sanford Stadium is Oconee Hill Cemetery, an Athens jewel and a place many Athenians have never visited. Opened in 1856, it was designed by James Camak as a Victorian natural landscape, or park-like, cemetery. Originally 17 acres, it has grown over the years to almost 100 acres, and is filled with beautiful tombstones and mausoleums marking graves with familiar names such as Cobb, Lumpkin, Church, Hill, Hodgson, and many others. Oconee Hill is the final resting place of UGA Presidents, Confederate Generals, governors, senators, cabinet members, musicians and the many talented people who made Athens the special place it has become over the past 200 years.

Charlotte Thomas Marshall was the first woman to serve as a trustee of Oconee Hill Cemetery and is a founding member of the Friends of Oconee Hill Cemetery. She is the author of the book “Oconee Hill Cemetery of Athens, Georgia, Volume 1” and is presently working on the three concluding volumes. Mrs. Marshall has written or edited five other books on Athens history and genealogy, including the recent “The Tangible Past in Athens, Georgia,” the recipient of the Georgia Historical Records Advisory Council’s Award for Excellence in Documenting Georgia’s History. She has given walking tours of the cemetery for over 45 years.
