That River lyrics

No one ever loved that river, rain from

the highlands a mirror for the Cajun moon

A road without a memory of anything

that started out as blue

Well you can pour me like a jug of wine

Into the gulf of Mexico, honey

Unitil the end of time but no one ever loved

that river the way I love you

You move with your own rhythm

like a tide on the river lightning on the Ponchatrain

The way you come to me a midnight

warm and naked as the rain

What were you whispering down at Natchez

Cause it muddied up my mind

About some great ocean going to make you

leave it all behind well, no one ever loved

that river the way I love you

You've got land above the salt line,

Bougainvillea in you hair

The barges poles for New Orleans

You said you'd leave without a care

But the rumour on the river is anything

that touches you will be free

but I know you can't be free

Well, you know you can never leave this river

without me

Your eyes them flash defiance, they will not wait

upon my word draw my eyes across the skyline

like some long and graceful bird

Your lips have known me better, honey

and that satin ball of fire turns to blue

I cannot leave this river, I will not leave this river

without you no one ever loved that river,

no one ever loved that river the way I love you
