lyrics

Rivers of Old Summer 2014

There are bass in the river leaping like squirrels
While in high branches squirrels swing about like five year old girls
The moon has bounced half way cross the sky
And I need the water it seems I need to be baptized

Roll over my soul
Roll over my soul
Roll over my soul like the rivers of old

There's a crowd in the alley one hand in the air
Shunting locomotion bodies a dizzy affair
Rat-a-tat-tat of Brazilian drums
Triangles and sousaphones implore the waters to come and roll

And roll over my soul
Roll over my soul
Roll over my soul like the rivers of old

A million bats 'neath an old Austin bridge
I join them and look out at light on the water shift
Oh to be a part of something so grand
Voices in unison echoing off the span

Rolling over my soul
Rolling over my soul
Roll on over my soul like the rivers of old
