. . . The HARRIER ANGEL "Red River Valley" sheet music is available here.
So many visitors asked if they could have the chords to the "Harrier Angel" version of "Red River Valley" that we decided to offer the sheet music on-line.

There is nothing more healing than music. Maybe it's because a deep need for healing has overtaken us since September 11, 2001. Suddenly everyone seems to want to be able to sing at least one song. "Red River Valley" is an excellent piece to work with because almost everyone knows the traditional version, and therefore know most of the melody already.

This version has the music for extra verses inserted so you can sing your favorites from the traditional lyrics, or write your own, to sing within the "Harrier Angel" setting. Also on this page, a note from the author tells the story of how this version of the song came to be written.
