The Portland Pearl Rotary Club Theme Song

Posted on: Monday, 10 December 2018

 (as written and performed by Rotarian Jerry Baysinger and the Peacemakers)
Background, from Jerry: On the revised PPRC rendition of "This Land is Your Land." "We first sang it in 2012, probably for a club assembly. In 2018, I updated it slightly to include some of our current projects. It seemed to resonate with everyone so it could well be Pearl Rotary’s theme song going forward."

"This Club is Your Club"

This club is your club, this club is my club
From the mountains of Nepal to the Portland Street Roots
From West Hills forests, to Willamette waters
Pearl Club was made for you and me

As I was biking that ribbon of Lovejoy
I looked toward Jamison and saw our Bear there
And way down yonder, the Bud Clark Commons
Pearl Club was made for you and me

I've roamed and rambled and I've followed our footsteps
From Youth Exchange kids to Growing Gardens
And every Tuesday, this chorus sounding
Pearl Club was made for you and me

The sun was rising as I was strolling
Our students arriving; the trolley rolling
Rain clouds were parting; Rotarians still bragging
Pearl Club was made for you and me

Repeat Chorus
