River That Sings

(VERSE)

I was born into a place

Where everything moves a little slow

From the fields up to the moonlight

The way it makes that river glow

 

I got a lil’ bit older

Start to hear that sound

Used to hear the people talk about it

I never knew what they meant but I know now

But I know now

 

(VERSE)

So I jumped into the river waist deep

Where the folklore got it’s FAME

And then it moved up the riverbed

Straight to your radio waves

From Percy Sledge to the Rolling Stones

On 2 inch tape with that Swamper tone

(CHORUS)

Listen to the river

That River That Sings

The River that Sings

The River that Sings

Take me to the river

To the River that Sings

(VERSE)

I was born into that place

Where everything moves a little slow

From the fields up to the moonlight

The way it makes that river glow

Now I got a bit older

And we're the ones making that sound

and the people gather 'round us

Shower us with love and pass it around

(CHORUS)

Take me to the river

That River That Sings

The River that Sings

The River that Sings

Take me to the river

To the River that Sings

(SOLO)

(OUTRO)

I was born into that place

Where everything moves a little slow

From the fields up to the moonlight

The way it makes that river glow
