Pearl Jam. Lots of water references in their music.

Check out the Stringdusters " night on the river (is all I need)". They even have a cool video on you tube of a 45 minute concert in Rattlesnake Cave on the middle fork of the Salmon.
Bill Stains: "river". Very folky and heartfelt.
Talking Heads. Take me to the River.

Used ta have the '95 high water video( of the Royal Gorge) from sunshine studios ,playing in the office every day when we got back from our trip. Jessica by the allman brothers is forever engrained in my consiousness to be about boating after 9 years of that film, along with Riple by the Greatfull dead.

I started first on the water by canoe. There are cds called Canoesongs Vol. I and II originally a fundraiser for the Canadian Canoe Museum, and I've learned to play quite a few on guitar. (Favorite is "Red Canvas Canoe". There's also a fun kayak one on how "the Eskimo Roll is not a sweet confection..") They also eventually put out a guitar book of the songs, which I found after picking out several myself.

I also found a cd called Music River that incorporates all kinds of watercraft. The titles alone should tell you:
When You Pulled Out With Your Dagger (You Left a Blue Hole in my Heart)
Rafting Rhapsody
My Kayak and Me
Runs and Riffles
There's So Much You Can Do in a Canoe
River Waltz
Smoky Mountain Mornin' Song
Whitewater Woman
Talkin' Canoe Blues
Trip's End

Looks like it's available on cdbaby. Have worked up many of these as well.

My husband and I (both canoe river guides at the time) received the Katie Lee cd for a wedding gift. Haven't worked any of those up yet, but also fun.

Mike Finders of Finnders & Youngberg also has a great song "Driftwood."
"Cisco Boat Launch" by Mark Merryman and the Canyon Rats
"Keepin' Time by the River" - Chuck Pyle
"The River" - Garth Brooks
"Moonlight on the Colorado" - three versions run through my head - the traditional, the Garrison Keillor version, and one by the same Mike Finders
"Ol' Man River" - Show Boat (musical)
"River in the Rain" - Big River (musical)
"When the River Meets the Sea" - Muppets
"Knee Deep" and "Toes" - Zac Brown Band
"River Bank" - Brad Paisley
"Paradise" (Green River) - John Prine

That said, if you're playing around a campfire in Colorado, you also have to know some John Denver, of course. Billy Joel goes over well, too. And I re-wrote one, for a "Colorado State of Mind" all about paddling.

And then there are all the songs you can throw in about the stars and/or moon at night...

Fun thread.

I will start with Phish because there is a line from the song that repeats - stop, stop, stop, stop. Anyone who has ever run a paddle boat will know. If I have to say stop more than once I launch into this song and no one really gets it and I don't care.
"Waiting for the time when I can finally say, this has all be wonderful, but now I'm on my way. When I thing it's time to leave it all behind, gotta a find to and there is nothing I can say to make it stop, stop, stop, stop, stop, stop, stop, stop."

For me there are lots of Talking Heads, Grateful Dead, Tom Petty, Jerry Joseph and the Jackmormons, AC/DC and The Doors in my Favorited, Five Star Music. This is some, but not even close to all, of the others that don't get skipped when they come up on shuffle.
