Carry Me (A River)

carry me (a river)

carry me a river
take i there, by the river
let the cool breeze wash away the pain
from within me not in vain

carry me a river
where the sweet melodies of the birds reign
the birds in a singing mood so plain
wipe off my mind from the railing train
and carry me over yonder to clear my brain
as you carry me a river

carry me a river
by the river side
the pebbles and the bubbles
clear as water by the stream
as you carry me a river
told me the best poor surrogate of wisdom is pride
but intelligence and self trust will avoid troubles
not even in your dream

carry me a river
in touch with i roots
in my gideon boots
and some khaki suites

carry me a river
to dream a better me
and look back to see
the horizon by sundown
lost but not a clown
with my thinking crown
i stood up to go back-a town

next time
carry me a river on time
though you carry me there for some time
but next time
carry me a river on time

Song: When I Saw The River Rise

With soggy ground across the state,
The rain fell from the skies.
The storm seemed bound to seal our fate,
When I saw the river rise.

We'd built up all our levees,
Yet still we were surprised,
By the height and depth of eddies,
When I saw the river rise.

When I saw the river break it's banks.
Increase in breadth and size.
It came atop of that water-tank,
When I saw the river rise.

Together held fast, from the full weather blast;
We stayed 'cause we thought it wise.
With my partner tasked to do what I asked,
When I saw the river rise.

Just a short drive, she arrived in town,
To pick up more supplies.
A flash-flood found and drove her down,
When I saw the river rise.

The news was bad, I'd lost all that I had;
All that I valued and prized.
More than just sad, I was sure driven mad,
When I saw the river rise.

And I stood there on the paddock gate,
As the tears streamed from my eyes.
And I did not care how long the wait,
For all the help, it came too late,
In shock, in loss of my best loved mate,
When I saw the river rise.

When I saw the river rise.

Jordan River

This is a river of life
where John baptized Jesus;
This is a river in history
where companions of Muhammed
were buried near the banks
of this river of life.

This is the same river
of life where captives and slaves
wept for freedom, and where Jews
crossed through this river
to reach their Promised Land.

Now this river looks dead
turned brown or red by human neglect
The once fresh water has turned
black and foul by sewage
from homes and factories.

This river will rise up again
as long as we do not forget
Jordan River’s role in life
and history of God and mankind.
Save our life!
Save our history!
Let Jordan River breathe alive!

Blind River

To daddy with slumber
I feel your pain
Rushing down the valley of my loins
Such drastic rage
I peel my skin in the night
Just to read your secret message
Lord help me if I don't make it until the morning

Blind river's calling me
Blind river
Blind river's calling me

And so the ice cream man burned his hand
He said he didn't know it would hurt so bad
Well in my dreams he is the son of God
Touching every sinner on the block
And why would he do that?
I don't know
But the fire is wearing thin

And I am a sinner
Why didn't he burn me?
Well maybe I'm the one to set him free

Blind river's calling me
Blind river
Blind river's calling me

Blind river's calling me
Blind river
Blind river's calling me.
