Lyrics to "Beauty In the River" by Ozark Mountain Daredevils

There's a beauty in the river
There's a beauty in the stream
There's a beauty in the forest at night
When the lonely nightbird screams
And there's so much time for singin'
And so much time for words
There's so much time to listen
And so much time to be heardThere's a brighter day round the corner
There's a crown behind the hill
There's a city of light on that foggy mountain top
Where the wind is never still
And there's so much time for livin'
And so much time to die
There's so much time for laughin'
And so much time to cryWe must all stand in the water
We must find it when we roam
It don't matter what is said
We can wake up from the dead
And roll away the stone
We can roll away the stoneThere's a truth in the eyes of my woman
That no mortal ever knew
She lights my way like the coming of the day
When the sun shines on the dew
And there's so much time for singin'
And so much time for words
There's so much time to listen
And so much time to be heardWe must all stand in the water
We must find it when we roam
It don't matter what is said
We can wake up from the dead
And roll away the stone
We can roll away the stone (hallelujah)We must all stand in the water
We must find it when we roam
It don't matter what is said
We can wake up from the dead
And roll away the stone
We can roll away the stone (oh lord)We must all stand in the water
We must find it when we roam
It don't matter what is said
We can wake up from the dead
And roll away the stone
We can roll away the stone

The Ozark Mountain Daredevils were started in 1971 in Springfield, Missouri in an attempt by the singer/songwriter members to have a vehicle in which to display and promote their music. At first, they played in bars and on porches. However, a record executive from A&M records discovered the band, and they began their recording path.

The original members of the band consisted of:
John Dillion - (vocals, guitars, mandolin, fiddle, piano, harp, autoharp, dulcimer, jawbone, percussion, keyboards)
Mike "Supe" Granda - (vocals, bass, acoustic guitar, mandolin, percussion, chicken squawks)
Buddy Brayfield - (vocals, oboe, piano, harpsichord, organ, percussion, electric piano)
Randle Chowning - (vocals, lead electric & acoustic guitars, harp, national steel, mandolin)
Steve Cash - (vocals, harp, percussion, harpsichord)
Larry Lee - (vocals, drums, acoustic guitar, synthesizer, piano, percussion, saw, saw & board)

The Daredevils peaked commercially in 1973-1974 and were best known for "Jackie Blue" and "If You Wanna Get To Heaven", which both got national coverage. However, there was a wide range of music that the Daredevils produced that was widely missed. The influences of the locale and the talents of the band members produced some unique sounds that could be related to "rockabilly" influences. There was also a good body of music that could be classified as country, rock, ballads, folk or blues.

The band changed throughout the years, but played prevantly throughout the '70s and gained and lost members during that time. To this day, there is still a loyal and avid fan following. There are discs still being released by the group, mostly of past performances in the '70s. In addition, many of the members are currently still working on other interests including Randle Chowning, Larry Lee ("Beyond Reach") Mike "Supe" Granda, and possibly others.

A reunion concert was held in Springfield, Missouri at the refurbished Gilloiz Theatre, in May of 2007. The three nights they performed were entirely sold out, weeks in advance of the concert.
