The River

John E Dosher

 

Tell me about The River

Where did it begin

tell me about the power

And tell me where it ends

 

If I jump into The River

Will it wash me out to sea

Will I drown in my own sorrow

Will I die in misery

 

            Somebody tell me now

            Somebody do

            Somebody open me up wide

            Fill me with the truth

 

Will The River love me

If I promise to be good

Will The River wash me clean

If I’m misunderstood

 

If I fell into The River

Would it wash away my sins

Would it fill my soul with joyful noise

Would I walk the earth again

 

            Somebody tell me now

            Somebody do

            Somebody open me up wide

            Fill me with the truth

 

SOLOS

 

            Somebody answer me

            Somebody please

            Somebody help me understand

            Bring me to my knees

 

If I slipped out of The River

Would I be drenched in mud

Would The River wash me clean

And leave me with the taste of blood

And leave me with the taste of blood
