Sheet Music: "Coming Down from Spavinaw." Published by the Tulsa Chamber of Commerce. Words and music commissioned by the Tulsa Water Commission. The song was probably written for the opening of the Spavinaw Water Project. Lyrics: "Coming down, coming down, coming down from Spavinaw. / Water flows, Tulsa grows, finest town you ever saw. / We have dreamed, planned and schemed. / Now it's here! Water clear. / Coming down, coming down, coming down from Spavinaw! / Let it flow, let it flow, let it flow from Spavinaw. / Clear and cold, pure as gold, nothing like the Arkansas. / In the tub - no more mud! / At the sink - take a drink! / Let it flow, let it flow, let it flow from Spavinaw!
Preservation and archiving of this significant Tulsa treasure of photographs and artifacts was made possible through the Tulsa City-County Library and the Tulsa Historical Society, and the generosity of Tulsa World/Lorton Family, Chester Cadieux, the Rotary Club of Tulsa, and many other community-minded corporations, institutions, and individuals.
