Red River

tell me where the blood red river runs

from my back door to the rising sun

on again away till dawn

never straight and way too long

I weighed the trees and hills on scales

the zig-zag lightning and killer whales

silver clouds reflected in deep

I don't measure up I don't measure up

red water's boiling the wind will blow it

halfway 'cross the ocean the wind will blow it

red water's boiling the wind will blow it

halfway 'cross the ocean the wind will blow it

I am a liar I rage on paper

a piece of string could only do better

been talking for years it's hard to remember

a piece of string could only do better

tell me where the blood red river runs

from my back door to the rising sun

on again away till dawn

never straight and way too long

way too long

way too long

way too long

red water's boiling the wind will blow it

red water's boiling the wind will blow it

red water's boiling the wind will blow it

red water's boiling the wind will blow
