Santa Cruz River song

Listen to Sing Back the River, a beautiful, bittersweet song about the Santa Cruz River by Petey Mesquitey. It’s about southern Arizona’s (and northern Mexico’s) Santa Cruz River which used to flow year-round near downtown Tucson. It is about what we’ve lost and what we could regain. The lyrics to the song are featured in Part III of Eat Mesquite and More along with strategies to bring back the river’s flow. To hear Petey’s introductory story to the song click here.
