Drag This River Lyrics

Artist: The Walkabouts
Album: New West Motel

Quick, burn it down to the wick
Burn it down to the heart
So the ending can start

Here, behind the riverhaus door
With an unloaded gun
And an unsettled score

Well I'll never drag this river
I'll never drag this river X2
I'll never drag this river down

You, nothin' comes to you slow
Nothin' comes to you hard
Though you beg like you're hard

And me, don't shake the barrel ar me
And don't treat idle threats
Like you treat all your friends

Well I'll never drag this river
I'll never drag this river X2
I'll never drag this river down

And if you walk out that door
Don't come back
Because there'll be no door

And if you walk out that door
Silence greets you
Silence, will be yours

I hear ya callin' from a long distant shore
But you won't come back, [well / 'cause] you can't come back

The water's risin' and the levee is not sure
And you won't be found, no you can't be found

Drag this river down
