River Take Me

by Darrell Scott. Buy album CD: Theatre Of The Unheard

Itís been rainy and windy for seven days straight
Iíve been going to bed early and getting up late
I look out my window and itís one shade of gray
My wife and my kids donít have much to say
A man out of work only gets in the way

Oh the river is rising now one inch an hour
And tonight weíll be lucky if we still have power
But Iíve got a flashlight, an oil lamp and Iím ready to go
And a fresh set of batteries for my sonís radio
If the dam really breaks, least weíll know where to go

River take me, river take me
River take me far from troubled times
River take me, river take me
River take me far from troubled times

If I had a boat you know what Iíd do?
Iíd float me and my family down to Baton Rouge
I wouldnít work in no factory Iíd live off the land
And live within means of my own two hands
Dance Saturday nights to a Zydeco band

Oh the river flows and a young man dreams
And the river can drown you
Or it can wash you clean
It can take you away to some other place
It can power your cities, carry your waste
And give all that you drink a peculiar taste

Oh, donít look to me, Iíve done my time
You see Iíve had too many dreams for this one heart of mine
And Iíve stood on the bridge with the river below
Feeling all of the sadness that a proud man could hold
Oh the river is full but thereís no way to go
