Story

The Mullica River runs through the New Jersey Pine Barrens and is one of the most scenic and unique places in the world. The iron, glass and cedar wood industries are gone, but the folklore and history remain. I love reading about New Jersey history and life deep in the Pines. The shipbuilding industry is one of those lost once the railroads and coal mining came along, but if you are floating down the Mullica River today (which I recommend!) you can imagine the thriving life gone by and see remnants of the shipyards dotting the banks. -Heidi

Lyrics

Baptized in cedar water A way of life Preaching and ship building Deep in the pines God left his mark Here at the Forks I’m floating down The Mullica River Oh, Oh, Oh With a hold full of glass and iron And a heart filled with love Oh, Oh, Oh Long planks of white cedar Stacked in the yard Lamp black and Turpentine Color my kin The flood tide signs Time to untie the lines I’m floating down The Mullica River Oh, Oh, Oh With a hold full of glass and iron And a heart filled with love Oh, Oh, Oh And when the journey long I pray to return May the wind bring me home I’m floating down The Mullica River Oh, Oh, Oh With a hold full of glass and iron And a heart filled with love Oh, Oh, Oh
