River of Blood Lyrics

Artist: Tim O'Brien
Album: When No One's Around

The land I live in, it has no borders, it's under my feet wherever I go
Around the world in every corner
There's always a family or a friend I know
I see myself in all their faces, I hear my voice when they sing a song
The path I walk is nothin' but a trace
Of a river of blood runnin' pure and strong

The river of blood it starts with a trickle
High on a mountain when the world is new
It flows through time and gathers the memories
Washes รข'em down over you and me
From the ring of Kerry to the streets of London
The land down under to the USA
Many have tried but none can contain it
The river of blood keeps makin' its way

Chorus: A river of blood in a valley so wide
Cuttin' its course with a current of pride
My soul finds mercy, my heart such peace
I get down to the bank, I fall down on my knees
And drink from the river of blood

Sometimes I walk though a foreign city, people will turn, stop, and stare
There's somethin' strange they sense about me
The sound of my speech and my curly red hair
For a little while I might be lonesome but I know I won't be lost for long
Around the bend at the bottom of the hill
The river of blood is flowin' strong

Chorus

The land I live in, it has no borders
It's under my feet wherever I go
Around the world in every corner
There's always a family or a friend I know
I see myself in all your faces
I hear my voice when you sing a song
The paths we walk are nothin' but traces
Of a river of blood runnin' pure and strong
