Black Gold – The Riverboat Song lyrics

I see double up ahead
Where the riverboat sways beneath the sun
Is where the river runs red
Like a king who stalks the wings and shoots a dove
And frees an eagle instead
It's more or less the same as the things that you said

I see trouble up the road
Like the things you found in love are by the way
And like to cheat on your soul
Like the best and worst of thoughts that lose control
Before you lie in your bed

It's more or less the same as the things that you said
Anyway for all the things you know
Tell me why does the river not flow
Anyway for all the things you've said
Tell me why does the river run red
Anyway for all the things you've seen
Tell me when will the river run green
Anyway for all the things you know
Tell me why does the river not flow.

It's more or less the things you fail to say in your way
That's your trouble
Like a king who stalks the wings and shoots the moon and the stars
And his double
It's more or less the same as the things that you said
I see trouble up ahead
Where the riverboat sways beneath the sun
Is where the river runs red
I see double - that's my trouble.
